Edmonton police have a suspect in custody in connection with a possible hate crime aimed at two hijab-wearing women.
Police made the announcement Tuesday, a day after providing a photograph of the man to media.
According to police, the man, believed to be in his 60s, approached two women wearing hijabs at the University of Alberta LRT station last month, pulled a rope from his pocket, tied a noose and said, "This is for you."
The man then proceeded to sing O Canada, which was caught on video by one of the women, police said.
Police thanked the public for helping the Hate Crimes Unit with the investigation.

Witnesses described the women, one of whom was wearing a hijab, as Muslim.
