Police are offering a $ 3,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of a racist suspect. Authorities released a video of the woman involved via Twitter.
An African-American mother and her two young daughters were racially abused inside a Brooklyn pizzeria in New York, USA, after a woman insulted them and threw spicy powder at her 5-month-old baby, local media reported.
The New York Police Department said on Twitter that the incident took place on the afternoon of June 11 at Knot Race Pizza.
According to the portal Eldiariony.com, the mother said the unidentified suspect started by verbally assaulting her 4-year-old daughter. “Leave the country,” he shouted at them.
The woman also took a bottle of spicy powder and threw it in the face of a 5-month-old baby, who was carried away by her mother, the media continues.
While apologizing to the victim, he did not even make eye contact with the attacker because he was focused on paying for the pizza.
“I heard someone talking outside. Then he came up behind me and took the spice and threw it away. “The mother immediately checked that the product did not affect her little girl’s eyes and nose.
“I talked to my other daughter (4 years old). We’m all human, we ‘re going to be together. We will continue to eat together, New York will continue to stand,” he said.
Meanwhile, another customer of Pizzeria, realizing the attack, recorded the woman very sadly as she left the place.
