“She didn’t even care for the well-being of a baby―that’s how serious this hate crime is”
―Assistant District Attorney Kelli Muse
Yeah. This is one of those days when we all get to be disappointed.
A bigoted Brooklyn woman launched a sickening attack on two Muslim women pushing their babies in strollers — punching them in the face and trying to pull off their hijabs, prosecutors said Friday.
“Get the f–k out of here,” Xhelili, 32, allegedly yelled at the pair, according to prosecutors. “Get the f–k out of America, b—–s.”
As she punched the 23-year-old women in the face and kicked them in their legs, she tried to rip the traditional Muslim veils off their heads at Bay 20th St. and Cropsey Aves., police sources said.
“This is America―you shouldn’t be different from us,” she yelled, prosecutors said.
The victims and babies were not badly hurt, police sources said.
