The Council on American-Islamic Relations of Orlando is calling for an investigation into a possible assault and battery case at the Prime Outlet Mall in Orange County.
Mustapha Elmejjati said he was attacked by a woman at the Children’s Place department store earlier this month.
“You know I was just behind her,” Elmejjati said. “I was not talking to her. I was talking to the other lady. And maybe she heard my accent and said ‘we are in America here! Go out!’ I said ‘Ma’am I’m talking with you and I’m American too and I’m not finished’ and Pow! And I fell down.”
