Incident Report – Charlotte, VA

Share This:

A hijab-wearing Muslim woman was breastfeeding her one-month-old child in a Charlotte shopping center parking lot this week when she noticed a man staring at her for several minutes. The man, she said, then reached into the back of his truck, pulled out a long gun and aimed it directly at her.
The victim, a native of Pakistan who had lived in Charlotte for 11 years, fled to a nearby store to call police before the man drove away, she told The Charlotte Observer Wednesday.
“Now I should get out of here,” she recalled thinking at the time. “I’m not going to sit here and let him shoot me.  I took my baby in my arms and rushed toward the store.”
The man was identified by the victim as being white and in his 40s or 50s. It was not clear whether he had followed the woman, who was wearing an abaya, a Muslim dress, as well as a hijab, into the parking lot. He did not utter a word as he stared and then got out of his pickup truck to retrieve his gun, the woman said.
