This is the shocking moment a man is captured hurling a paving slab at a woman wearing a hijab in a suspected racist attack.

In the CCTV video, which appeared on social media, a woman can be seen standing on a street in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire on Tuesday, under an umbrella, unaware of the danger she is just about to be in. 

In the terrifying moment, a hooded man dressed in black comes charging towards her carrying a large paving slab held in both hands. 

The man then throws the slab at the woman’s head, just as she moves out of the way and ducks in an attempt to avoid the piece of concrete.

The woman in the hijab – a modest head covering worn by Muslim women – then runs from the attacker towards two stunned bystanders.
