A man who used pepper spray on a crowd of Syrian refugees in Vancouver could end up facing hate-crime charges.

Police are looking for the culprit who was riding a bicycle at the time when he sprayed a group of muslims standing outside a mosque where the newcomers were being welcomed to the community.

Vancouver Police Chief Adam Palmer says the person could be charged with assault with a weapon or assault causing bodily harm.

Fifteen people who were sprayed, including children, were treated for burning eyes or other ailments.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed outrage over the incident.
