Viral cctv footage shows a 43-year -old Australian randomly attacked and stomped on a pregnant Muslim woman, who was hanging out with friends at Bay Vista Cafe on Church Street, Parramatta at 10.30 pm on Wednesday.
The attacker was named as Stipe Lozina and police have arrested and charged him with affray and assault occasioning actual bodily harm since the attack.
The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) expressed concerns on the real and escalating threat of Islamophobia in Australia.
