Summary of the eRumor: An image of a newspaper clipping

who says he was assaulted by a Muslim woman while photographing his son
with his new camera in Younge-Dundas Square in Toronto, Canada. When he

his new camera in the Younge-Dundas Square in Toronto, Ontario.
According to an
August 4, 2011 article in Britain's Daily Mail, Menzies said that he
was trying out his new Cannon digital camera when a "woman in a hijab
approached him shouting that he could not take a picture of her."
The article went on to say that Menzies said that he was "punched in the
head by the woman and surrounded by a group of people shouting Arabic at
him. A police officer then refused to press charges."
