Two hate-motivated acts at a place of worship in Ottawa led to the arrest of a 43-year-old man, according to police.
The crimes occurred on Tuesday and Wednesday at a center of worship on the 1-100 block of Nadolny Sachs Private, according to police.
Police say on Tuesday, a man showed up at the establishment and interfered with religious worship. He was asked to leave and left without incident, police say.
Police say he returned the next day, where he was arrested after an organizer at the religious event flagged down a nearby patrol officer.
No one was injured during either instance.
Police charged Girmay Mamo Gebremedhin, of Gatineau, Que., with two counts of disturbing persons assembled for worship and two counts of mischief. Police determined the two alleged incidents were motivated by hate.
