Two men who tried to enter a Toronto yeshivah last month, but were stopped because they did not have identification, were in fact employed by a cable company, according to police.
Police have confirmed that the two unidentified men were repairmen working as subcontractors for Rogers Communications, the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center, which first raised the alarm, noted in a press release on Nov. 5.
“The incident is no longer considered suspicious,” the press release stated.
The two men, who were wearing yellow construction vests, came to the front doors of Yeshiva Darchei Torah on Oct. 29. Since they reportedly did not have identification, they were not allowed to enter the building. At the time, the yeshivah said it contacted Rogers, which said that no servicepeople were sent to the area.
