Jordan Hunt, 26, was charged with eight counts of assault and seven counts of mischief, according to a Toronto Police Service press release. He was also charged with one count of assault from a previous encounter back in August. (RELATED: Man Kicks Pro-Life Activist, And It Is All Caught On Tape)
He approached the Youth Campaign Life Coalition group of activists and began drawing on their signs and clothing last Sunday. Marie-Claire Bissonnette approached him and then, as the video shows, they began a heated debate on abortions. (RELATED: Man Identified In Video Kicking Pro-Life Activist Loses Job And Charged)

Hunt eventually said, “It’s a baby, if someone is raped and she gave birth and decided to kill her three year old child -,” and that’s when he kicked her.
Hunt then shouted “I meant to kick your phone.”
According to the police statement, after that he grabbed a ribbon that was on her and ripped it off before running.

The police report also describes another assault Hunt committed against a pro-life activist back on August 2. He approached a group of pro-life activists, tried to grab one of their signs and then pushed a woman into a pole. Hunt then fled the scene as well.
Prior to the arrest, Hunt was fired from his job at a hair salon, Nobel Studio 101.
