A nurse was driving home early on the morning of April 5 in Houston, Texas after an overnight shift at a hospital when a man stopped her car and began screaming anti-Muslim slurs at her and stabbed her, the Raw Story website reports today (April 7, 2018).
Houston television reported that the Muslim woman -- who was wearing a hijab -- believes the attack was religiously-motivated.
The woman returned to the hospital to have her wounds treated.
The attacker, and a passenger in his car, were described as white males between the ages of 20 and 35. The attack may have been a retaliation for Muslim terrorist attacks that frequently occur in the U.S. and around the world.
