It happened on the 21st of February. A 64 year old woman was murdered on the streets of Toronto at around 7 p.m.

A 30 year old man attacked the woman with a hammer, and was originally facing a first-degree murder charge.

But now police suspect that the attack is terrorist related.

“As part of our investigation into the homicide, we came across evidence that lead us to believe there may be a terrorism-related offence” said Toronto police spokesperson Meaghan Gray to Global News.

Proscutors are now charging the man with “murder – terrorist activity”.

The attacks appears to have been random, with the victim reportedly being a stranger.

The mother of the suspect said that the family left Pakistan in 2001 to escape terrorism.

She says that he walked an hour every day to a mosque, but on the night of the attack he did not return home as usual.

The suspect turned himself in to police shortly after the attack had taken place. At the police station he sparked a bomb scare. He placed a suspicious package at the front desk while turning himself in.

In its most recent public annual report, the Canadian Security Inteligence Service warned that recent terrorist activities in the West have typically been low-resource, high-impact acts.

“Recent terrorism activities in the West have been typically characterized by low-resource, high-impact acts, and usually inspired by terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda or extremists responding to Daesh’s call for a ‘virtual caliphate” said the report released in June.
