Toronto police arrest Jordan Hunt, man who roundhouse kicked pro-life woman, Marie-Claire Bissonnette

Toronto police have arrested Jordan Hunt, 26, of Toronto, and charged him with assault following his roundhouse kicking a young woman Sunday. That video is at the bottom.

Hunt, who turned himself in, is charged with eight counts of assault and seven counts of mischief. He appeared in court at Old City Hall Saturday morning for a bail hearing.

Things got heated between Marie-Claire Bissonnette, 27, and Hunt when Bissonnette challenged Hunt, accusing him of vandalizing her pro-life signs.

Hunt begins by challenging Bissonnette’s views, asking her opinion about abortion relating to women who are raped.

Hunt says, “If somebody gets raped by somebody and they’re like, ‘I’m a 16-year-old and I can’t have this baby,’ think you should keep it?”

Hunt then gives the protester a thumbs up/thumbs down gesture. Bissonnette replies, “It’s a baby. If someone is raped and she gave birth then she decided to kill her child.”

At that moment, the man planted his feet, stuck out his tongue and delivered what authorities described as a “roundhouse kick” that struck Bissonnette in the shoulder, sending her phone tumbling through the air.

“I meant to kick your phone!” he yelled.

“Someone call the cops!” Bissonnette yelled. “Do not touch me!”

The video was recorded during the Life Chain demonstration in Canada on September 30.

The man fled and police arrived at the scene, Toronto Police Service spokesman Gary Long said after the incident.

Hunt has also been identified as the man who knocked over a sign and argued with pro-life demonstrators last summer in a video filmed by Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform (CCBR).

Hunt lost his contract at Noble Studio 101, which posted a statement on Wednesday that “We don’t condone his actions and he has been let go.”

“We’re four strong women here,” a studio representative told LifeSiteNews. “We don’t condone any kind of violence… He won’t be stepping his foot through the door again.”

Hunt has shut down his Instagram account and has not responded publicly about the incident, nor has he returned calls from media.

    What a big brave man. Kicking a woman. He’s lucky I’m not her husband/brother/father/uncle, or he’d have a chance to hit me with his purse. Before he lost consciousness.
