Deputies investigate possible hate crime

April 6, 2018 – Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigators are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of slashing a woman with a knife while yelling anti-Muslim slurs at her.

The victim, a 25-year-old woman, told investigators that she was driving home from her job at , 21000 Northwest Freeway, at 1:30 a.m. on Thursday and was driving south on Huffmeister Road. A northbound red SUV swerved into the victim’s lane of traffic, narrowly missing her. The women then stopped in a parking lot on Huffmeister Road to compose herself. The driver of the red SUV made a u-turn and also pulled into the parking lot, according to the woman. The driver then exited the vehicle wielding a knife and shouting ethnic slurs at the woman. The woman told investigators that she used her arm to shield herself from the attack and sustained a laceration. A passenger in the red SUV then led the driver back into the vehicle and the two men drove away. The victim then drove herself to an emergency room for treatment.

The men are described as follows.

Suspect 1 is a white male, 5 feet 8 inches tall, about 175 pounds with a thin build and dark hair. He was wearing a white t-shirt and dark colored pants.
