A man from Mason is charged with Ethnic Intimidation and Assault & Battery for an incident in the Meridian Mall parking lot last month. Prosecutors say Jonathan Deuel and two other people tried to pull the veil and full-body dress off a Muslim woman, then knocked her down and yelled slurs at her. The woman was not seriously hurt but has been seeing a psychologist. The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is asking for help identifying the other attackers.
