“Police said the woman felt something warm on her arm and then noticed her blouse was on fire. They say she patted it down and spotted a man standing next to her with a lighter in his hand. ”
This is so awful and sad. A man is being accused of setting a muslim woman’s blouse on fire in the middle of Fifth Avenue in front of a Valentino store in midtown. Islamophobia is becoming rampant and even though the attack is currently being investigated by the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force, it is not officially designated as a hate crime as of yet.
