San Jose State University campus police are investigating a reported attack on a Muslim student in a parking garage Wednesday.
Sophomore psychology major Esra Altun was standing next to her car Wednesday when she says a male attacker grabbed her headscarf from behind and violently pulled it back, making it hard to breathe.
Altun was walking on the third floor of the West Garage at South Fourth and East San Salvador streets around 2:10 p.m. when the attack occurred.
She says the man said nothing, ran away, and that she didn’t see his face.
The 19-year-old said the presidential election of Donald Trump might have something to do with it because of his earlier anti-Muslim remarks.
