edmonton racist rant

Canadian man goes on racist rant after woman rejects his advances

A Canadian man performed Nazi salutes and shouted "you're bringing corona into Canada!" during a racist attack in Edmonton. 

A Filipino woman named Patricia Anne Medrano shared a video of the incident on Facebook. 

Medrano described how her brother pretended to be her boyfriend after the attacker initially tried to hit on her. 

"Since I don't want to give my number, he keep on insisting to give his number to me," she explained. 

Medrano says that the attacker then launched into a nasty verbal assault on both her and her brother.

She continued: "He is really being disrespectful and saying racial slurs like 'Go back to your country! This is Canada, not Wuhan. You spread the virus.'" 

Things quickly escalated as the attacker violently kicked Medrano's door and shouted threats like I'll "decapitate you" and "get the f*** out of Canada."

In a second series of videos, the attacker continues to shout racist slurs from the window of his apartment building. 

"You're bringing corona into Canada!" he says

Sharing an update later in the week, Medrano revealed police arrested the man and he is banned from their apartment building.
