MONTREAL – Police have arrested a 24-year-old in connection to an anti-Muslim Youtube video where a man wearing a Joker mask and speaking in a low voice promised to “kill one Arab a week.”
Montreal and Quebec provincial police tracked the video to a home in Montreal North and took the man in for questioning.
Authorities could not say, however, if he is the one seen in the video.
It is not yet clear what charges he may face; he is expected to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.
“We could have an idea once the interrogation is over to see what kind of proof officers gather,” said André Leclerc with Montreal police.
“We should think, at least, uttering threats but it could be something like inciting public hate.”
The video has since been taken down.
