New Hampshire police looking for man accused of pulling on woman’s hijab

MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - Police in Manchester, New Hampshire, are looking for a man accused of pulling on a woman’s hijab at a restaurant last month, officials said.

A 25-year-old woman told police she was sitting at a table at The Farm restaurant about 4:45 p.m. on June 22 when a man walked up and pulled on her hijab without saying anything.

The man pulled on the woman’s hijab long enough to cause discomfort to her head and chin, police said.

The suspect allegedly released the hijab and walked toward the bar, where he was confronted by the victim’s co-workers.

The suspect is being described as a white man about 40 to 45 years old, possibly 5 feet, 6 inches tall with dark hair.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is urged to call Manchester police at 603-668-8711, reference Case # 18-9416.
