A spokesperson for the Ottawa police says the incident occurred in the 100 block of Carruthers Avenue, which crosses Scott Street from Mechanicsville into Hintonburg.
Police were called to the scene at 7:52 a.m. on Canada Day, where officers reported finding “hate-motivated graffiti.”
The image has since been removed from the scene.
