Attack on four Indian-American women in Texas: White woman arrested
The attacker is heard in a video asking the women to go back to India. The post shows the two sides engaged in a bitter argument and the woman in question smacking them one by one even as they retreat in defence. The incident took place in Dallas, Texas. The video has raised concern among the Indian-American community. A Twitter post claimed it is scary as she had a gun. In another recent disturbing incident, in Coppell Middle School North in Dallas in the month of May last, an Indian middle schooler was assaulted and choked in headlock by a bully in the classroom, and shockingly, the Indian student was punished by the school!

DALLAS (Texas), Aug 27: In yet another incident of racial assault in the US, four Indian-American women were abused and smacked by a White woman on a street in Dallas in Texas, on Wednesday evening. The woman has been identified as Esmeralda Armendarez-Upton of Plano, Texas, and arrested.

The incident took place in a parking lot of 3700 Block in Dallas Parkway. The Plano police, responding to a disturbance complaint, have registered it as a hate crime and the assailant was arrested on Thursday. Further investigation is under way, the police department said.

The video has raised concern among the Indian-American community. A Twitter post claimed it is scary as she had a gun.
