AUSTRALIA – A 38 weeks pregnant woman was punched 14 times and stomped on by a racist man in Sydney.
Footage shows the accused, 43, approach the group of women wearing hijabs, at a restaurant in Parramatta, on Wednesday night.
A brief conversation takes place before he leans over and punches the victim at least 14 times to the head, and then appears to stomp on her twice while she lay on the ground.
During a court hearing, police alleged the accused made a racist comment to the woman before the attack.
“After making a comment about Muslims, you approached her and punched her to the head 14 times,” Magistrate Tim Keady said.
According to reports, the suspect is unknown to the woman, but is known by police officials. He was refused bail and remains behind bars.
The woman is expected to make a full recovery.
