Kenyan Woman Brutally Attacked at a Minnesota Restaurant for Not Speaking “American”
Asma’s friends say Asma along with her friends and their children were dining at an Applebee’s restaurant on October 30th when another patron overheard them speaking in a foreign language (Swahili). The patron yelled to them to speak “American” and threw a beer mug to Asma’s face, an attack which left her with deep cuts on her face and busted lips. The injuries required 15 stitches.
Jodie Burachard-Risch, 43, was arrested for the attack and charged with third-degree assault. She is scheduled to appear in court on December 7th.
