Emirjeta Xhelili, 32, allegedly attacked two Muslim woman who were pushing their babies in strollers in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn last Thursday at around 1:30 p.m. ET. Xhelili is said to be a supporter of Donald Trump.
According to the New York Daily News, Xhelili approached the women, ages 23 and 24, as they passed near the attacker's apartment. Xhelili allegedly yelled, "Get the fuck out of America, bitches." The attacker allegedly punched both of the women in their faces, and kicked them in their legs. To further her intentions of adding insult to injury, Xhelili attempted to rip off both women's hjiabs, and knocked over one of the stroller which caused the 15-month old baby inside of it to fall onto the ground.
The two Muslim women and their babies were reportedly not hurt from the attack.
As police came to the scene, they arrested Xhelili, yet continued with more hateful verbiage to the women by saying, "You guys don't belong here." Also, according to the New York Post, a criminal complaint was filed by the Brooklyn District Attorney that reported Xhelili had stated, “This is the United States of America, you’re not supposed to be different from us.” Also, she has recently posted some tweets on social media supporting Trump, with one tweet including her praising his presidential candidacy.
“America is the ark of Noah,” one tweet read. “Trump’s gonna win.”
Xhelili is charged with misdemeanor assault as a hate crime, and was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Friday. She has been held on $50,000 bond, or $25,000 cash bail. A judge ordered issued a protection order for the two victims and their babies. The next court date for Xhelili is scheduled for next week on Sept. 14.
