(CITY OF GUELPH)  At around 11:30pm on Wednesday October 5th 2022, an act of hate-related mischief occurred at the Beth Isaiah Synagogue, located on Surrey Street West in Guelph.

The male then proceeded to take a selfie in front of what he had just done. He is described as wearing a dark jacket with a sweater hood pulled up over his head, black pants, black boots, black gloves, a dark-coloured backpack and a balaclava-tyle mask over his face. He was last seen walking northbound on Dublin Street South.
