A police investigation is underway after a man was violently attacked outside a mosque in Scarborough on Wednesday. The shocking footage was captured by a surveillance camera and the two suspects could be seen fleeing in a grey sedan that was being driven by a third suspect. The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A shocking video has been released showing two men violently attacking a seemingly unsuspecting person in the parking lot of Baitul Aman Masjid near Victoria Park and Danforth avenues at around 7:45 p.m. A man can be seen walking in the parking lot when two men approach him. One seems to be carrying a bat and starts striking the victim. The other person then kicks the man to the ground and they continue to stomp and hit him.

A grey-coloured sedan then pulls up slowly next to them and the two escape. A concerned person in a car nearby then runs over to assist the victim. According to the police, the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

There is no information on the suspects yet. The police said, “The investigator has advised that after speaking with the victim, the attack does not appear to be hate-motivated.” The victim was identified as 67-year-old Mahbubul Alam Chowdhury by Muhammad Kamruzzaman, the secretary of the mosque.

Kamruzzaman added that the victim “couldn’t walk properly. He cannot talk even properly,” and that his family is thinking of moving residence. He also added that the suspects, who he does not know, waited for about an hour in the parking lot before attacking the victim.
