    Police: Man Pulled on Woman's Hijab in NH Restaurant
    Manchester Police

    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.
