An assistant professor at the University of Missouri was arrested after allegedly pulling a young girl out of school for not wearing a Muslim headscarf according to the Columbia Tribune.
Youssif Z. Omar, 53, noticed his 14-year-old relative was not wearing the traditional hijab as he drove by Hickman High School in Columbia on Tuesday.
Omar, whose Facebook profile lists him as being from Benghazi, Libya, grabbed the girl “very violently by the hair” and dragged her down stairs and into his car while slapping her, Officer Latisha Stroer told the Tribune in an email.
Omar’s LinkedIn page, according to the Daily Mail, lists him as being an assistant professor at the University of Missouri, Columbia and manager of Artifacts Journal at the University bookstore.
On Wednesday he was arrested on suspicion of child abuse.
He was released after posting a $4,500 bond.
