An unidentified man riding a bicycle attacked a group of Syrian refugee families gathered at the Muslim Association of Canada Center in Vancouver on Friday night.
The group of 30 people had just arrived in Canada from their war-torn country, and were attending a welcome night at the center, according to reporters.
They were waiting for a bus outside the Muslim Association of Canada centre on Kingsway. Some very young children. pic.twitter.com/QcDPXpTLmX— Rafferty Baker (@raffertybaker) January 9, 2016
“A guy at the front actually was, like, his eyes were completely covered, he couldn’t see for a whole, like, 20 minutes. Some kids got unconscious because of how strong it was ... A bunch of women and children, they were all just affected by it.”
