Tulsa, Oklahoma resident Stuart D. Manning, 43, was booked into the Tulsa Jail January 2nd on assault and battery and malicious injury to property charges this past Thursday after allegedly committing a hate crime.
The incident in dispute took place on December 13th when Manning, angry that the woman parked too close to his car, shouted after her “”hey f—–g b—h Muslim, why did you get so close to my car,” three times and “hey you Muslim b—h, I got your tags you f—–g Muslim” as she made her way into a business nearby.
When she exited the building to return to her car, Manning was there, stabbing her tire with a knife. When she asked him why he had just done that, he hit her with his fist in the forehead and again called her a “f—–g Muslim b—h” as he was taking the swing.
According to the police report, at the time of the attack, the woman was wearing a head scarf and “she has a thick Middle Eastern accent and speaks and writes fluent Arabic.” Police also noted, “She has the appearance of someone that typically is of the Islamic faith.”
Manning claims he has no recollection of the attack, stating he had a “drinking relapse” at the time of the incident. He did, however, say the glasses held by police were his. The victim said she knocked them off his face during the attack.
In addition to the assault, battery, and malicious injury to property charges, Manning also faces a “hate crime/malicious intimidation” charge. His bond is set at $3,000.
