The Staten Island boy charged with a hate crime for trying to rip off a classmate's hijab apparently had an accomplice — a 13-year-old girl also charged with a hate crime. The girl — and her school — have a history of infractions.
According to the New York Post, 13-year-old Krystal Callender was arrested Friday and charged with the same crimes as 12-year-old Osman Daramy — felony assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment as a hate crime. In addition to helping him harass the other girl over the course of two months — Callender at one point allegedly threatened to stab her if didn't give up her cell phone and money — she's also committed a number of other offenses. She was caught in the robbery of a pizza delivery man outside her school (Daramy is also a suspect), and she was suspended for stealing $70 from a teacher's purse.
