Police are looking to charge a man with mischief after he allegedly kicked over Canadian flags at the Sunnybrook hospital cenotaph on Remembrance Day.

They say the man was jogging past the hospital grounds on Bayview Ave. south of Lawrence Ave. E. around 2:30 p.m. Sunday when he allegedly kicked down some of the flags displayed for ceremonies.

The man was photographed giving a finger gesture to onlookers. The image was posted to the Toronto forum on the website Reddit, by a user who said the flags were sold for a Legion fundraiser.

Police released one of the photos Wednesday evening. The man is described as a bald, white male between 5’9” and 5’11” and around 175 lbs.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5300 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
