CityNews | posted Wednesday, Jun 22nd, 2016

Police are looking for a woman after another woman was punched, spat on and had her hijab pulled in a London, Ont., supermarket.

Investigators say the alleged victim was shopping with her four-month-old son late Monday afternoon at the Superking Supermarket when they were approached by a woman who began yelling at them.

They say the unidentified woman then spat on the woman, and punched her several times.

Police say the assailant then grabbed the woman’s hijab and attempted to pull it off her head before pulling her hair.

They say the woman suffered minor injuries in the incident.

The suspect is five-feet five-inches tall, 30 to 40 years old, around 150 pounds, with long black hair pulled back in a ponytail. She was wearing a red “Canada” T-shirt and black pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call the London police at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

    To the person who did this horrific thing…maybe Canada is not the place you should be living…think about another planet. We do not tolerate such barbaric behaviour in this country.

    As a Canadian citizen, I think I can say that we are truly embarassed for such behaviour. We are made of better stuff. This incident is by no means indicative of who we are.
