A female Muslim student was attacked at Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City, Missouri, reports The Kansas City Star.
The FBI announced Wednesday that the attack took place in April on ‘punish a Muslim day.’
The day is a violent initiative to spread hate. Participants can earn rewards and points for violent acts committed. These include: 25 points for pulling off a woman’s head scarf, 500 points for murdering a Muslim, and 1,000 points for bombing a mosque.
On the day of her attack the female student was walking to class when she heard a man yell racial slurs to her. As she turned around the man punched her in the face. The student immediately reported the incident to campus police and received medical attention.
The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can offer up information on a potential suspect.
FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said the incident is a “potential hate crime.”
Christina Medina, a spokeswoman for the college said: “As a district, MCC will not tolerate discrimination or harassment against our students, employees, and community.”
MCC Chancellor Kimberly Beatty said: “We encourage you, if you see something, say something.”
