VANCOUVER - A man has been charged with assault after police say a woman was the subject of a religion-based threat on a train in Vancouver on Monday night.

Metro Vancouver Transit Police say the woman boarded a Canada Line Train at Waterfront Station in downtown Vancouver.

After she sat down, police say a man seated nearby spoke in Arabic as he approached her, allegedly yelling obscenities.

"He allegedly told her to go back to her country and that he would kill all Muslims, as he grabbed her head, pulled it into his crotch and attempted to pull off her hijab," police said in a news release issued Wednesday. "As he allegedly slapped her face, another passenger stood up and placed himself between the woman and the suspect, pushing him away."

Paul Wyatt said of the pair of incidents, which police believe are linked.Both letters are signed with a symbol that is "essentially a Canadian flag with a red cross in the centre of it, rather than a maple leaf," said Misty Wind Shingoose, a resident of the southeast community of Deer Ridge.
