NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 51-year-old woman wearing a Hijab was attacked by a group of teenage girls in Brooklyn.
Souad Kirama was in a Panera restaurant in a city-owned office building on Adams Street Tuesday afternoon and says the girls were cursing. They were throwing themselves on the floor and even swinging on a chandelier, according to Kirama.
When she asked them to quiet down, Kirama says they turned on her calling her a terrorist, spitting, then punching and kicking her. No one watching the attack tried to stop them, police said.
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes unit is investigating. So far, no arrests have been made.
