Orlando Sentinel - - NATION & WORLD -

PORT­LAND, Ore. — Au­thor­i­ties is­sued an ar­rest war­rant Fri­day for a woman ac­cused of try­ing to choke a Mus­lim stu­dent with her head­scarf and then ha­rass­ing her by strip­ping down at a train sta­tion in Port­land.

Jasmine Re­nee Camp­bell, 23, has been in­dicted on hate crime, at­tempted stran­gu­la­tion, ha­rass­ment and crim­i­nal mis­chief charges for the Nov. 12 at­tack.

The Mult­nomah County dis­trict at­tor­ney’s of­fice de­scribed the at­tack, say­ing Camp­bell grabbed the re­li­gious head cover worn by the Port­land State Univer­sity stu­dent to try to choke the stu­dent with it.

Pros­e­cu­tors said Camp­bell then stripped down and rubbed the stu­dent’s hi­jab over Camp­bell’s naked breasts and gen­i­tals while dis­parag­ing Mus­lims.
