AhlulBayt News Agency – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is calling on state and federal law enforcement to investigate an attack on two Muslim women in West Rogers Park as a hate crime.

Officials at the Chicago chapter of CAIR said the attack comes at a time of heightened Islamophobia, which they said has spiked since this year’s presidential nominees were announced.

Chicago Police are investigating after the women, a mother and her daughter, reported being harassed and physically attacked early Thursday morning.

Suzanne Damra said a woman targeted her and her mother because they are Muslim and wearing hijabs. They said the woman yelled, spit, and harassed them while they were walking to Damra’s car around 6:15 a.m. READ MORE OF THIS STORY
