MOTHER AND SON ASSAULTED AT FRENCH SUPERMARKET
The alleged perpetrators saw that the victim was Jewish because she was wearing a Star of David pendant
Aveiled woman along with two younger women assaulted a Jewish woman and her teenage son in a supermarket near Toulouse, a watchdog on antisemitism said.
The incident occurred on Tuesday in Carcassonne, a town situated 55 miles southeast of Toulouse, the National Bureau for Vigilance against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, reported Friday. The watchdog characterised the incident as an antisemitic assault.
The alleged perpetrators — which BNVCA wrote may have been a mother and her daughters — saw that the victim, a woman in her 40s, was Jewish because she was wearing a Star of David pendant, the group wrote in an incident report.
The alleged perpetrators deliberately rammed their shopping cart into that of the Jewish mother and her son. The veiled woman and the two younger women accompanying her all slapped the Jewish woman and her son, said BNVCA, which named neither the alleged perpetrators nor the alleged victims in the incident. No one was injured in the incident.
