A man kicked a Hijab-clad Muslim airline employee at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport after shouting obscenities at her and telling the woman that President Donald Trump "will get rid of all of you,", a media report said today.
"The Queens District Attorney's Office said Robin Rhodes, of Worchester, had arrived from Aruba and was awaiting a connecting flight to Massachusetts Wednesday night when he approached Delta employee Rabeeya Khan, who wears a hijab, while she was sitting in her office," reported The Indian Express.
Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said Rhodes came up to the door and went on a profanity-laced tirade, asking the woman if she was praying.
He allegedly punched the door, which hit the back of Khan's chair.
"Khan asked Rhodes what she had done to him and Rhodes replied, "You did nothing." He then cursed at her and kicked her in the leg," the reported quoted Brown as saying.
When another person tried to calm him down, Brown said Rhodes moved away from the door and Khan ran out of the office.
"Rhodes followed her, got down on his knees and began to bow down in imitation of a Muslim praying, shouted obscenities and said "Trump is here now. He will get rid of all of you. You can ask Germany, Belgium and France about these kind of people. You see what happens," Brown said.
