The Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) is seeking the public’s assistance to identify a suspect after a hate-related incident took place in Milton.

Police say on Monday, January 31, 2022, at approximately 2:00 p.m., a female suspect verbally threatened to harm a mother and her son at a parking lot located at 1020 Kennedy Circle.

According to police, a similar incident occurred earlier in the day involving the same suspect at a Tim Hortons in the area of Thompson Rd. and Louis St. Laurent Ave.

No physical injuries were sustained by the victims, according to police.

Due to the hateful language used by the suspect directing these threats, police say it is being investigated as a hate-related incident.

The suspect is described as a white female, approximately 35-45 years old with a medium build, brown hair and was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, brown boots and was carrying a backpack.

Any witnesses or persons with information surrounding this incident are asked to contact Detective Sergeant Dwayne Perron of the 1 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4747 ext. 2415.
