ORIGINAL STORY/VIDEO: LONDON, Ontario: Woman charged after shopper’s hijab pulled in Ontario supermarket
The Rebel (h/t Liz) When police in London identified and charged the suspect, they only charged her with common assault—not anything “hate” motivated.
More curiously, they refused to name her, which is a stark departure from their usual practices, through which the names of anyone charged are released to the media. Even when asked by media outlets, police were tight-lipped.
The accused is 38-year old Sheila Shaidaie of London. We don’t yet know her motivations for the alleged assault, but we do know one thing: When she appeared in court, she had a Farsi interpreter.
