A Muslim student was attacked last week at a nearby school. The male assailant followed her into a bathroom where the attack took place. Police have confirmed that she was attacked for being Muslim.
“First of all, any kind of act of hate or expression of hate or any hate speech is something that we do not condone in this district.”

Muslim students at Sierra College also reported stalking, and feeling unsafe on campus in the days leading up to this attack.
