Stanford University deputies are searching for a woman who pushed and called another woman an ethnic slur on Stanford University's campus on Thursday, according to Department of Public Safety staff.
Between 12:30 and 12:40 p.m. on Thursday, two Asian women were riding their bicycles on Jane Stanford Way toward Arguello Way, according to an alert issued Saturday afternoon. They rode past a woman who then proceeded to use both of her hands to push one of the women biking to the ground. She stared at the woman who fell and "in a loud, angry manner" referred to the victim using a term that was later determined to be an ethnic slur, a hate crime, before walking away, according to the alert.
The victim declined medical attention and did not want to provide a statement to law enforcement about the incident. A witness to the incident made the police report and provided the information about what happened, the alert said.
The woman accused of battery and the hate crime is described as a white female in her 30s or 40s of average build, with short light brown hair, the alert said. She wore a black rain coat.
Anyone with information about the battery and hate crime is asked to call the department at 650-329-2413.
