TEHRAN (IQNA) – A woman wearing hijab was 'attacked' plank of wood and racially abused by a gang of Scots teenagers near a Glasgow subway station.

The group allegedly attacked the woman near Ibrox subway station

 

A 50-year-old woman, who wears a Hijab, was allegedly cornered by the group of teens who shouted Islamophobic and classist slurs in the horrific ordeal around 1.30pm on Monday near Ibrox.

She was subjected to the abuse while one male allegedly 'pushed her around' before hitting her on the face with a plank of wood.

Following the sick attack the woman's daughter took to social media in a bid to identify those responsible.

Posting on her Instagram story, she said: "This group of teenagers cornered and attacked my Hijabi 50-year-old mother at 1.50pm whilst shouting Islamophobic and classist slurs. In Ibrox, Glasgow.

"After pushing her around the male photographed in the next slide with his finger up hit her on the front of her head/face with a plank and wood and left her injured.

"Please help us find them/share. This isn't the first time something like this has happened."

Two females can be seen wearing skirts while trying to hide their identity from the camera.

One has their hood up with a black jacket and black bag while the other is wearing a light coloured bag and a black jacket with long brown hair.

At least another two people, thought to be boys, can also be seen with their hoods up trying to cover their faces.

One is avoiding looking at the camera but sticks their finger up at the woman as they walk away.
