Woman’s hijab pulling called a hate crime

Kingston, Ont., police are asking for the public’s help after a woman allegedly pulled on another woman’s hijab, which police are calling a hate crime assault.

Police said a woman was finishing her grocery shopping at a store around 5 p.m. ET on Jan. 28 when another customer came from behind her and pulled on her hijab.

They said the suspect yanked the head covering so hard it forced the victim to bend backward. The suspect then let go and left the store without saying a word.

The female suspect is described as Caucasian, slim, about 40 to 45 years old, with long black hair and was with a male companion.

Surveillance images of the suspect an associate and the victim can be viewed on the Kingston police website.

Anyone with information should contact Kingston police Const. Sean Leblanc at 613-549-4660, ext. 6250 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8744.

  1. Let the poor woman shop in peace, good lord, what is wrong with people? I think anyone who attacks a perfect stranger for no reason other than the fact the they have on a scarf must be a seriously disturbed person…and I use the term “person” loosely.
