A US court has charged a young American with inciting hatred and racism after he attacked a Saudi Ph.D. student on a street in Michigan, sabq.org electronic newspaper reported.
Jonathan Patrick Deuel, 29, and two others reportedly tried to pull off the woman’s face veil and abaya as she walked down the street with her five-year-old daughter.

Deuel faces up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine if convicted, the media said.
Deuel, along with two other men and one woman, reportedly surrounded the woman and tried to remove her abaya, but she fell to the ground as the attackers shouted slurs at her, according to press reports. 

The attackers fled after the woman’s husband heard her cries and rushed to the scene.
The Saudi woman was hospitalized for 36 hours after complaining of pain in her left arm.

“Though she is in stable condition, the woman is still psychologically shaken up by the incident,” media sources said.

Dawood Walid, executive director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), welcomed the charges against Deuel but expressed disappointed that the other attackers walked free.
“The two Saudis, who live with their daughter in Michigan, are both Ph.D. students in the United States,” he said.
