Toronto police say they are investigating after a video was posted online showing a man urinating on another man sleeping on the sidewalk outside the Eaton Centre.
The website that posted the video is the same one that posted a video last year of three girls attacking an older woman on Yonge Street.
The 27-second video shows a young man walking up to a man sleeping on the pavement outside the shopping centre.
The man urinates on the sleeping man while others can be heard laughing off-camera. The victim —who may be homeless — does not react.
The video is titled: “Real Or Fake? Cold-Hearted Thug Urinates On Sleeping Homeless Man In Downtown Toronto!”
Toronto police say the act constitutes an assault and they are investigating.
Last year the website —World Star Hip Hop — posted a video of three teens involved in an altercation with a 35-year-old woman near Yonge and Dundas streets.
The three attack the woman, punching and kicking her as she curls up on the ground.
The entire confrontation was recorded and posted on the internet.
The teens were arrested a short time later.
