Alek Minassian (November 3, 1992-) is a Canadian mass murderer who killed 10 people during a van attack in Toronto on April 23, 2018. He is currently detained and awaiting trial.

Early Life

Alek was born on November 3, 1992 in Richmond Hill, Ontario. He attended Sixteenth Avenue Public School where he was put into a special needs class and was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. He later transferred to Thornlea Secondary School where classmates described him as harmless and not overly social. In 2011 he enrolled into Seneca College to study software development. During his time at college he joined the Canadian Armed Forces for 2 months where a senior military officer said that Alek wasn't adapting to the military life.

After being ridiculed by some women at a Halloween party in 2013, Alek began to resent women (particularly "alpha" women whom he referred to as "Stacys"). Some time after that, he met Elliot Rodger on Reddit, and after Rodger's attack, Alek came to believe that the attack had been part of a rebellion against a society dominated by "Chads"(alpha men) and "Stacys". In a Facebook post hours before the attack, he called himself an incel (an abbreviation for "involuntary celibate", a person who believes that his sexual inactivity is the result of factors beyond his control) and showed support for mass shooter Elliot Rodger, who he referred to as the "Supreme Gentleman."

The Attack

On April 23, he rented a Ryder van and drove to Finch Avenue where he ran a red light and drove down the sidewalk and began hitting people, during the attack he re-entered on to the roadway and a witness said that Alek looked at his victims in the eye before killing them. His attack stopped at Mel Lastman Square where he was arrested. After his arrest, he attempted suicide by cop, demanding the officer shoot him in the head while holding an object which he attempted to pass off as a gun. The officer recognized it wasn't, and subdued him with his baton.
