    York Regional Police’s Hate Crime Unit needs help to locate a suspect wanted in connection with multiple hate-motivated incidents in Vaughan.

    On Sept. 18, police say a male driver was in the area of New Westminster Dr. and Steeles Ave. when an unknown man began yelling anti-Semitic remarks at him. The victim began filming the suspect, who police allege then approached the vehicle and attempted to assault him.

    Cops say that the incident is connected to six others that began on Sept. 18, involving graffiti written on garage doors and vehicles on Mullen Dr.

    The graffiti was hate-motivated and referenced both the Black and Jewish communities, according to police.

    A warrant has been issued for Kurt Edwards, 43, of no fixed address.
