A female Muslim was the  victim of an assault that took place against her on Sunday after an Arsenal and Chelsea game in Wembley.

At around 6 pm, the mother was sitting at a bus-stop in Wembley Central accompanied by her  16 year old and 7 year old daughters. At one point, Chelsea fans walked by her and then assaulted her with what she believed was an umbrella or a football flag that had been rolled up. She was hit with the item and she stood up shouting as to why she was being assaulted.

The assault stopped and another Chelsea fan responded by swearing at her and he then verbally abused the women, shouting that she was ‘bomber’. The fans walked off leaving the mother in pain and with her daughters in significant distress.

The assault was severe enough for the Muslim female to have to take pain-killers. Police are working with the woman to investigate those responsible. The story was also shared with Muslim complaint service who will take up the complain with Chelsea.
