Man Charged with Assaulting Muslim Woman at Meridian Mall

Man Charged with Assaulting Muslim Woman at Meridian Mall

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Aug 8, 2014

A man from Mason is charged with Ethnic Intimidation and Assault & Battery for an incident in the Meridian Mall parking lot last month.

Prosecutors say Jonathan Deuel and two other people tried to pull the veil and full-body dress off a Muslim woman, then knocked her down and yelled slurs at her.

The woman was not seriously hurt, but has been seeing a psychologist. The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is asking for help identifying the other attackers.
