A Plano woman is facing charges after investigators say she assaulted and threatened several Indian-American women in a racially charged outburst that was recorded on video Wednesday night.

Video of the interaction was recorded outside the Sixty Vines restaurant in Plano by one of the women involved and was shared online.

In that video, a woman who identified herself as a Mexican-American can be heard directing a number of racially charged statements toward the group including, “Go back to India,” and “We don’t want you here.”

The woman could also be seen physically confronting the group in the public parking lot attempting to stop them from recording video of her with their mobile phones.

It’s not immediately clear what happened before they started recording, but as the confrontation continues in the video, one of the women dials 911 and asks for officers to hurry.

According to police, officers were called to a restaurant parking lot on the 3700 block of Dallas Parkway at about 8:15 p.m. When officers arrived, they said several women reported being assaulted by the woman who was still at the scene.

One of the women wrote on Facebook that the woman “came at us with hateful racial slurs…I have lived in DFW for 29 years and never have I felt so humiliated, threatened, and scared for my life.”
