On Thursday, a man armed with a baseball bat attacked a family in the parking lot of the Elgin Mall in St. Thomas, Ontario, accusing them of being Islamic terrorists.
However, according to the Toronto City News, the family was from Colombia and were speaking Spanish as they made their way through the parking lot.
“We got terrorists here!” shouted the man — who was later arrested at his home in London, ON. “ISIS!”
He swung the bat at the family several times, striking an adult male and cracking his ribs. He then fled the parking lot in a white BMW.
Police charged the 36-year-old attacker with aggravated assault and three counts of assault with a weapon. Officials said the attack “appears to have been racially motivated.”

MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch shreds ‘pathetic circus figure’ Rudy Giuliani
MSNBC's Donny Deutsch shredded Rudy Giuliani as a "pathetic" clown for continuing to trade out what was left of his reputation to serve President Donald Trump.
Giuliani dismissed special counsel Robert Mueller's upcoming congressional testimony, scheduled for July 17, as "totally useless," and "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough raked him over the coals.
"It's hard to believe this man ever ran a city like New York, let alone the fact that many people like myself consider him to be a very effect effective mayor," Scarborough said. "It's just a cynical, cynical, stupid thing for Rudy Giuliani to say."
Democratic debate night is here – and Twitter predictions have begun
The first night of the Democratic debate has arrived and we've scoured Twitter to find you the headlines you can't afford to miss.
Will Elizabeth Warren maintain her double-digit status? Can Joe Biden overcome the generational issues and missteps he's come to be know on the campaign trail thus far? Will Rachel Maddow prevail as top moderator considering there's a Chuck Todd type (it's actually him) in the room? All of this and more remains to be seen - but first:
These are moderators for the #DemDebate:
Joe Biden’s ‘Jim Crow moment’ was dreadful — but he may be Democrats’ best shot at beating Trump
The Democratic Party's presidential nomination and the White House are Joe Biden's to win — unless he sabotages himself.
Last Tuesday while speaking at a fundraising speech in New York, Biden reflected on his early career in the Senate, working alongside Sen. James Eastland of Mississippi and and Sen. Herman Talmadge of Georgia, a pair of old-line segregationists:
I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me 'boy,' he always called me 'son.' Well guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today, you look at the other side and you're the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don't talk to each other anymore.
