A 32-year-old man, who was wanted on a surety warrant in two alleged hate-motivated incidents where antisemitic slurs were hurled at victims, has been arrested, Toronto police said Saturday. Michael Park was arrested on the strength of the warrant at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, police said. No additional charges were laid. He will appear at Old City Hall on Saturday. This is Park’s third arrest recently. He was initially arrested on July 6 after police were called to Stanley Park in the King Street West and Walnut Avenue area around 8 a.m. Police said Park was seen with a drawing of a swastika on his chest and allegedly yelled antisemitic slurs at a person before throwing an object at them. He was arrested nearby and charged with assault with a weapon as well as two municipal bylaw infractions related to behaviour in parks. Police said in a news release Friday that Park was released on bail with a surety, but this is no longer the case.
