Police: Christian rips headscarf from Muslim teen, yells ‘terrorist’
Georgia police are searching for a man who forcefully yanked a headscarf from a 14-year-old Muslim girl and yelled the word “terrorist” multiple times.
Police in Dunwoody said on the evening of Good Friday, as the teenager, friends and an adult left Maggiano’s restaurant at Perimeter Mall, the man yelled out “terrorist” multiple times, then ripped the headscarf from the teenager so forcefully she almost fell to the ground. Police said the man took off with and stole the teenager’s headscarf.
The man is wanted on charges of simple assault and theft.
“To have this happen in our community is a shock to us,” said Sgt. Aaron Belt with Dunwoody Police, who said an event like this has never happened in their diverse, middle to upper-middle-class suburb just north of Atlanta.
