Atlanta, GA, November 26, 2019: An Indian-American was attacked with a whipped cream pie at The Mall West-End, in what the victim believes, is a racially motivated attack, reports Fox 5 News.
Joel Singh was visiting a friend’s jewelry kiosk at the mall last Thursday, when a young man suddenly shoved a tin or pie plate with whipped cream on the left side of his face.
Singh told Fox 5 News his face was numb and his vision was blurred for almost three hours. He felt like he was targeted because of his race.
Surveillance video shows three young men close to each other. One of them pulls out a pie tin or plate, then fills it with what looks like whipped cream. He walks over to Singh and shoves it in his face.
The youngster also allegedly hurled racial slurs at him.
After the attack, the three youngsters fled through the back door of a restaurant. Atlanta police are actively looking for them.
