FBI Issues Appeal For Help In ‘Hate Crime’ Investigation
A woman was harassed for being Muslim and sprayed with pepper spry by her attacker. Now the FBI is looking for help in the investigation. I guess Islamophobia is all made up?
COLUMBUS, Ohio –
The FBI has issued a more detailed description of a man who apparently sprayed a Muslim woman with a pepper spray and the public is being asked to help find him.
NBC4 first told you about this story Tuesday, after a veiled woman told police she had been sprayed with some kind of chemical by a man who came up to the driver’s side window in the parking lot of a mosque. He yelled threatening remarks and drove off.
The FBI is asking the public if they know a white male, in his 40’s or 50’s, 5 feet 9 inches tall with a medium build. His light colored, closed-cropped beard is coupled with a long mustache.
Authorities say his teeth are in poor condition, yellowish with several missing. He has light-colored eyes.
The image of the vehicle he was driving was captured on surveillance video. It’s a white Jeep Cherokee from the late 80’s or early 90’s and has a roof rack and black wheels.
Anyone with information on the man or vehicle is asked to contact the FBI at 614-744-2144 or Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
The woman did not suffer serious injury in the incident.
