Woman Charged With Hate Crime For Allegedly Snatching Hijab Off Student and Choking Her With It

A woman in Portland, Oregon, who allegedly snatched a hijab from the head of a Saudi Arabian college student and tried to choke her with it, has been charged with hate crimes, authorities said.

According to NBC News, Jasmine Renee Campbell, 23, allegedly took the hijab from the head of the 24-year-old Portland State University exchange student on Nov. 12 at a transit stop, the Multnomah County DA’s Office said in a statement on Friday.

Campbell also allegedly rubbed the hijab against the woman’s body as court documents alleged that Campbell then used the “hijab and rubbed it on and across multiple exposed sexually intimate parts of her body,” the DA’s office said.

Campbell was charged with two counts of bias crime, one count of attempted strangulation, one count of harassment and one count of criminal mischief, prosecutors said.

A warrant was issued for Campbell’s arrest after she did not appear in court on Friday, they said.
