A Georgia homeowner was attacked Tuesday by a woman dressed in a burka armed with the American flag that was in the homeowner’s yard, The Smoking Gun reported.
Aisha Ibrahim, 30, allegedly pulled Old Glory out of a mailbox in Lawrenceville, which is outside Atlanta, and “in a threatening manner” swung the flag at the homeowner, the report said. A fight ensued until a neighbor was reportedly able to hold Ibrahim, whose eyes were only visible, until police arrived.
Authorities told FoxNews.com that the fight appeared to be unprovoked.
The alleged victim was identified as Dami Arno, who reportedly called for hate-crime charges against Ibrahim.
“A Muslim women tore my flag pole down this morning and attacked me and my daughter with it. After the fight she was charged with simple battery 2 counts, nothing else. No hate crime, no destruction of property, no criminal trespassing -- nothing,” Arno reportedly posted on Facebook.
Capt. Tim Wallis, from the Lawerenceville Police Department, said he is going to look into a hate crime charge.
The report did not indicate the alleged attacker’s religion and said she was arrested on a pair of battery counts. A third misdemeanor charge was later filed, the report said.
