“This is not just another assault…This is maybe representing a new, dark side of Windsor that we can’t let propagate.”
Indeed. But it is propagating, and will continue to propagate. Justin Trudeau, stand up and take a bow.
The Qur’an says “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (47:4). Instead, Habibullah Ahmad left Sara Anne Widholm with “multiple brain hemorrhages, a blood clot on the surface of her brain that was immediately threatening her life, extensive skull fractures, fractured vertebrae in her neck, a lacerated scalp, and a badly bruised face.” He must be a moderate.
The shocking weekend assault of a 75-year-old woman left her with head injuries so terrible that the surgeon who treated her says they’re among the worst he’s seen in his medical career in Windsor.
“In my 12 years in Windsor, this is the most severe beating I’ve seen,” said Dr. Balraj Jhawar, a neurosurgeon at the Ouellette Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital.
Sara Anne Widholm, a grandmother and Riverside resident, remained in critical condition Tuesday afternoon.
She has not awakened since she was found unconscious and battered on the Ganatchio Trail east of Riverdale Avenue and Little River on Sunday morning.
Speaking to the Star with the permission of Widholm’s family, Jhawar detailed a long list of damage.
She was brought to the hospital suffering from multiple brain hemorrhages, a blood clot on the surface of her brain that was immediately threatening her life, extensive skull fractures, fractured vertebrae in her neck, a lacerated scalp, and a badly bruised face.
“The worst skull fractures I’ve seen in my 12 years here in Windsor,” Jhawar repeated.
“I’ve submitted pictures to Windsor police. This is among the most brutal things I’ve seen in my career. … Her eyes were so bruised, they were swollen shut.”…
Windsor police are acknowledging the extreme nature of this unprovoked assault in a popular park area.
“This was, without a doubt, a vicious, vicious attack,” Windsor police spokesman Sgt. Steve Betteridge said Tuesday.
“It’s very alarming to see an attack of this nature, at that time of day, at that location.”
Windsor resident Habibullah Ahmad, 21, who goes by the first name Daniel, has been charged with one count of aggravated assault. He remained in custody at press time.
Aggravated assault is an indictable offence under the Criminal Code of Canada. It carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment.
It isn’t yet clear what led to the one-sided altercation. Police said Tuesday that the incident “appears to be random in nature.”…
“For all of us who live here in Windsor, we can’t tolerate this. This is not just another assault,” Jhawar said.
“This is concerning to me. This is maybe representing a new, dark side of Windsor that we can’t let propagate.”…
