(CNN)An Indiana University student was arrested over the weekend after police say he attacked a Muslim woman, yelling racially charged comments at her and trying to remove her headscarf.
Police on Monday did not identify the woman, but said that she had been dining in a Bloomington, Indiana, restaurant's outdoor seating area Saturday night with her 9-year-old daughter when she was approached by 19-year-old Triceten Bickford. Police said the woman claimed Bickford was yelling things like "white power," "kill the police" and derogatory statements about black people.
Police said Bickford squeezed her neck and began forcing her head down toward a table, and tried to remove the scarf covering her head.
The woman's husband and a passerby helped restrain Bickford until police arrived. The woman complained of pain in her neck but didn't require medical condition, according to CNN affiliate WTHR.
The woman was sitting at a table with her 9-year-old daughter when a man emerged from a nearby alley shouting racial slurs, as well as "white power" and "kill the police." According to the affidavit, the man grabbed the woman by the neck and forced her head onto the table, restricting her breathing while trying to remove her headscarf. The woman's husband and a passer-by dragged him off and restrained him on the sidewalk until police arrived.
The man spit in the faces of the husband and passers-by, threatened to kill them and arriving officers, tried to kick out the windows of a patrol car and bit an officer on the calf at the Monroe County Jail, the affidavit says.

The way people here go on about them, he's lucky the cops didn't execute him outright and then shoot two or three more people while they were at it.
Drunken @ssh*les will be drunken @ssh*les and it brings out the worst of you in most cases.
