TORONTO police have confirmed that they received a report of “a suspicious incident” at Yeshiva Darchei Torah (Jewish school). The yeshiva reported that two unidentified Muslim-looking men wearing yellow construction vests came to its front doors on the morning of Oct. 29 and claimed to be cable repairmen working for Rogers Communications.
CJ News All doors were locked, “in accordance with our procedures,” the yeshivah stated in a letter to parents. The men used the intercom to try to gain entry, the school said. A rabbi responded and asked for identification. The two men reportedly did not produce any and were sent away.
The yeshivah said it confirmed with Rogers that no servicepeople were sent to the area and that there were no service outages in the general region. “Thanks to proper security measures in place at the yeshivah, the men never got inside,” the school stated.
