The attacker reportedly tore off the pregnant woman's hijab and hit her head against a car. The victim's friends told local media that the assailant also shouted racist insults at her.

The victim told the police she believes it was a faith-based hate crime.

Several women started campaigning against the attack using the hashtag #hijabuppropet (hijab outcry).
