Ontario Provincial Police are investigating what they say was a hate-motivated crime in Huntsville.

"On June 8, 2024, at approximately 7:45 p.m., a family was walking on the sidewalk near the intersection of Brunel Road and Main Street East when a grey and older model sedan approached the family. Four occupants in the vehicle called the family racial slurs and spit at them. The vehicle then travelled eastbound onto Main Street East," according to a police news release on Thursday.

OPP request that anyone who has information or video surveillance of this incident should contact the Huntsville OPP at 705-789-5551 or 1-888-310-1122.
