Woman throws ‘room temperature coffee’ in Toronto Star reporter’s face

At a Friday morning news conference, Toronto Star reporter San Grewal had coffee thrown in his face by a woman who supports Brampton Mayor Susan Fennell and is critical of the journalist’s reporting.

“I didn’t see it coming,” says Grewal. “It splashed into my eyes. This had nothing to do with Mayor Fennell. She was in no way instigating it. She was nowhere even near us.”

The mayor tweeted after the incident: “No reporter should ever be attacked for asking questions, however biased. I condemn the attack on Mr. Grewal this morning.”

Grewal, whose clothes and notepad were soiled, tells his paper he isn’t considering legal action at this time.
