A man's attempt to run a Muslim woman over with his car while she waited for a bus in Southampton was racially motivated, police have said. The 30-year-old woman, wearing a hijab, was targeted at Lordshill Centre on August 23. The man drove up next to her in a red car and verbally abused her, before trying to mount the kerb in his car. He then drove off towards a nearby roundabout, before driving back towards the woman, who ran off. "The woman, from Southampton, ran into a nearby library to escape further abuse, she was uninjured, but was left shaken by the incident," a police spokeswoman told The Muslim News.
