A controversial video by the Post featuring a Muslim woman who says she was assaulted by her Muslim neighbors has gone viral.
The video, which appears to show a Muslim man punching a woman in the face, has prompted calls for a federal investigation.
“I am a Muslim.
I am a woman.
And I have never felt like I was targeted or harassed,” the woman, who cannot be identified, tells a male friend on the video.
“But, when I was walking home, this Muslim man came up to me and pushed me against the wall.
I was shocked.
I didn’t know what to do.
I just stood there.
He kept coming.
I could not take it anymore.”
The video shows a man walking down the street and grabbing the woman by the hair.
The man then punches her repeatedly.
She struggles, as she tries to get away.
“He started hitting me.
And then I started to scream and cry.
And he stopped.
And that’s when I thought, ‘Well, this is going to end well.'”
The woman says the man continued to hit her.
“And then I saw a woman running away.
And my heart just stopped.
I couldn’t believe that it was happening to me.
I started running,” she says.
“So, I grabbed the woman’s hand and I grabbed her and I started screaming and I was crying.
And the man came back and he started punching me.
He punched me.”
She said she punched the man repeatedly and then she turned around and the man began hitting her again.
“My head just went to the ground and I hit my head on the door,” she said.
I saw him grab my throat. “
His mouth was open.
I saw him grab my throat.
And when I started choking, I started crying.”
The woman told The Washington Press that she felt like she was being attacked.
“This man grabbed me and threw me on the ground, and he hit me in the head with a metal pipe and I fell on the floor.
And it felt like an electric shock,” she told The Post.
“Then he started screaming, ‘Why you crying?
Why you crying?’
And he was screaming, and I said, ‘I’m not crying, I’m not screaming.'”
The video has been viewed more than 100,000 times on Facebook.
“She felt like he was using her for his pleasure.
And she was a woman,” said Rania Batroun, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union.
“We do not believe it is a fair characterization.
This was a violent assault.
This is not about a political protest, it is about someone getting hurt.”
The man has since been charged with assault.
The Post did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Washington News.
