Somali Women Assaulted In Possible Hate Crime

KiroTVFriday, October 22, 2010
The victims were attempting to buy gas at an AM/PM station on the corner of Tukwila International and Southcenter boulevards on Saturday evening, police said. While the victims were trying to resolve the issue, the suspect, a 37-year-old Burien woman, made disparaging remarks to them referring to what she perceived their race and religion to be.

The women continued to go about their business and didn’t speak to the suspect, police said. The suspect approached one of the women, who was sitting in a car with her legs out of the door, and slammed the door on her legs. The other woman ran out of the store and told the suspect to leave them alone; she was pushed back. The woman in the car stepped out and was kicked by the suspect. 
 
The suspect was arrested and booked into King County Jail, police said. She was released on bail Monday.
Police have filed a malicious harassment case against the suspect.

KIRO 7 Eyewitness News Reporter Deborah Horne spoke with the women. We'll update this story later with details from their conversation.
