Police are looking for two white men accused of viscously attacking a Muslim father and calling his family “terrorists” inside a Kroger grocery store in Dearborn.
Dearborn police confirmed they are investigating a bloody assault that took place on Thursday evening.
Witnesses told the Arab American News that the white men began harassing the family about ISIS and insisted they “go back to your country.” One of the men told the victim’s young daughter to “take that rag off your head.”
There was “blood all over the place,” one witness said.
“The incident is currently being thoroughly investigated to determine whether it involves a criminal assault and/or whether it was motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender bias,” Dearborn police said in a press release.
They declined to identify the family or say whether surveillance images were captured.
