Hate Crime Fizzle in Calgary as Knife-Wielder ID’d as Worshipper…

Police have taken one man into custody after an incident Friday at the Akram Jomaa Mosque in northeast Calgary.

It is not considered a hate-motivated crime as the man is known to those at the mosque.

Police say they responded to reports of a disturbance shortly after noon on Friday, and though initial witness statements to news media said the suspect had a gun, that was not the case. 

“Upon arrival, police encountered a man armed with a knife,” reads a statement. “The man was taken into custody with minor injuries and no one else was injured.”
