A man attacked a Muslim woman at a New York branch of Dunkin’ Donuts, throwing hot coffee at her and accusing her of a being a “terrorist” last month.

Nathan Gray, 34, reportedly told his 21-year-victim he “hated Muslims” and threatened to kill her.

He then hit her with his bag and put her in a headlock, according to police. Officers were called and arrested Gray at the scene. He was charged with assault as a hate crime.

The attacker walked into the doughnut shop near Seventh Avenue in Manhattan in the afternoon and asked for a cup of coffee, said a Dunkin’ Donuts.

She said: “I gave him coffee and he said something to me about terrorists, but I couldn’t hear what he was saying. He walked away from me and sat next to a group of Muslim women. He started talking to them and I could hear him saying, ‘Terrorists!’”

The employee said: “One woman called him ‘stupid.’ So he threw his hot coffee in her face. It was hot, hot coffee. She could have been burned. Then he swung his bag at her and it hit her in the face.”

The number of Islamophobic attacks has risen across the US in the weeks following Donald Trump’s election as US President.
