Police are looking for a man who is accused of pulling a woman's hijab last month at a restaurant in Manchester, New Hampshire.

The suspect did not say anything when he walked past the 25-year-old woman and pulled on her hijab around 4:45 p.m. on June 22 at The Farm on Elm Street, according to Manchester Police. The department says the incident caused discomfort to the woman's chin and head.

Police say the man walked toward the bar after letting go of the woman's hijab, but that he left after the woman's coworkers confronted him.

Authorities described the incident as a simple assault.

The man is described as being about 5'6 with dark hair. He is believed to be between 40 and 45. A coworker took a photo of the man as he left.

Anyone with information is asked to call 603-668-8711.
