DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Police in a Detroit suburb say there’s no credible evidence that religion or ethnicity played a role in an assault reported at a grocery store.

Dearborn police say there might have been “abusive language” but nothing that would make the incident a hate crime under federal law. In a statement Friday, police Chief Ron Haddad says a report will be sent to the Wayne County prosecutor.

A witness says two white men insulted an Arab man and his daughter at a Kroger store on Feb. 12. The man was punched as a fight broke out.

Haddad calls it an “isolated incident.” Dearborn has one of the largest Arab and Muslim populations in the U.S.
