THE BRONX -

News 12 obtained video over the weekend showing a Muslim man being attacked inside a Bronx electronics store. 

The Muslim spiritual leader says the attack landed him in the hospital for a day.

The video shows Mohammad Munshi inside an electronics shop on Unionport Road in Parkchester. He says he came in looking for a phone charger, but left bloodied and beaten.

Munshi says men in the store called him a terrorist and yelled at him. He says he tried to escape the men, but they attacked him.

"Attacking him as an imam is attacking the whole community, the whole Muslim world," says community advocate Mohammed Mujumder.

No arrests have been made.
