A Muslim woman was attacked and harassed by three men who called her a terrorist and repeatedly shouted "Donald Trump!" at her on the subway yesterday.
Police say the incident happened around 10 p.m. on Wednesday, when the 18-year-old victim was waiting for a northbound 6 train at the 23rd Street and Park Avenue station. Three men, believed to be around 21 years old, approached her and started screaming Trump's name at her.
The men then followed the unnamed victim onto the train, where they continued yelling Trump's name and called her a "fucking terrorist." They allegedly screamed other xenophobic things as well, including, "get the hell out of the country," and "you don’t belong here." Police say they ripped her purse off her shoulder, breaking the strap, then tried to remove her Hijab off of her head.
The victim exited the train at Grand Central and reported the incident to police; the suspects, who she said were drunk, stayed on the train.
Cops add that no arrests have been made, and the incident is being investigated as a bias crime.
