“I was sitting in front of my computer when the man passed to my left. He looked at me once, turned his head, then quickly turned his head back to me. A store employee at the mall, who preferred to remain anonymous to avoid reprisals, said at that moment he stopped He kept looking me straight in the eye.”

“I waited a few seconds thinking he was leaving. No change, still the same intense look. I asked him if I could help him thinking he was a client. He said no to me. I could see clearly in his eyes that he wasn’t happy to see me. At this moment I felt need to be photographed,” continues the young woman.

And in the viral video of the attack, the employee remains calm despite the man’s verbal attack.

“I was shocked, but not surprised. It’s not the first time I’ve been attacked, it’s only this time I had the opportunity to shoot. During filming, I forced myself to laugh at everything, but when I got home it really hit me. I got used to people Who look at me with displeasure, especially at work, but to give up words that contain a lot of hate, this was something new”, explains the victim.

She admitted that she was fortunate that one of the security personnel was close to the scene as no witness had intervened at the time of the anti-Islamic statements.

“My first instinct was to shoot. I felt like the situation was going to escalate, but I was so shocked that I forgot to call security. No witnesses called security.”

Security waited for the man to finish “what he’s going to say” and finally get him out of work.

In the video showing the attack, the employee can be heard responding to her attacker in a sarcastic tone.

“Honestly, I use humor as a coping mechanism to distract myself from being robbed. I tell people I’m fine and all, but at the end of the day when I get home from college, I always look around and wonder who my next attacker will be.”
