12 September 2016, 15:46

New York — Authorities say a New York City woman attacked two Muslim women who were pushing their young children in strollers and tried to rip off one woman's hijab.

Court documents say Emirjeta Xhelili approached the women near her Brooklyn home Thursday afternoon, punching one of them in the head as she screamed obscenities and told her to leave America.

Authorities say Xhelili pushed the woman's stroller toward the ground and later tried to grab the second woman's stroller away from her.

Xhelili faces charges including assault, menacing and endangering the welfare of a child. The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office has described the incident as a hate crime.

Xhelili is being held on $50,000 bond or $25,000 cash bail. Her lawyer tells the New York Daily News Xhelili has no previous arrests.
