Officers with the Abbotsford Police Department have contacted the hate crimes unit and Crown counsel as they investigate a man shouting racial taunts.
Sgt. Judy Bird says the disturbing incident on Friday has been posted online. She describes a man upset about a ticket issued for parking in a reserved space getting out of a truck and walking aggressively way toward the person who issued the ticket and someone else who is recording the incident.
Bird says police are not yet certain if the initial target of the slurs by a passenger in the truck was an Abbotsford bylaw officer or an employee of a private parking firm.
She says the person who was recording the incident is also taunted with a series of expletives that are shocking and upsetting.
Baird says everyone involved has now been identified and further progress on the case is expected.
