Mistaken for Muslims, two Jewish women, beaten in New York

(JTA) — A Jewish woman and her mother were beaten up at a Queens subway station by a man who mistook them for Muslims, police said. A 40-year-old man, was arrested at the scene and charged with multiple counts of assault as a hate crime, officials said.

The New York Post reported the women, 37 and 57, exited a subway and heard a man insult them. A police report said the man spit in one woman’s face and said “Get out of my country, you dirty Muslim,” then began punching both women in the face and body. The women were not seriously injured.
