Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Realtor and parishioner, Esmeralda Armendarez-Upton, arrested over racist and terrorist behaviour towards BanerJeer. 

"Suddenly, we heard this woman yelling at us and started coming toward us. We were shocked by the racial slurs that she used and combative attitude," said Banerjee. 

Banerjee started recording the incident with her phone. The woman, who was identified by Plano police as Esmeralda Upton, shouted racial slurs and began hitting Banerjee. 

"Go back to India, we don't want you here," Upton could be heard saying on the video. 

"What was so very scary is she came very close and not only verbally assaulted us but started physically assaulting us. She started hitting me," said Banerjee. 

Upton, who identified herself as Mexican-American, told the group in the video that she "hated Indians." 

PIano wrote: "ASSAULT ARREST
On Thursday, August 25, 2022, at approximately 3:50 p.m., Plano Police Detectives arrested Esmeralda Upton of Plano on one charge of Assault Bodily Injury and one for Terroristic Threats and is being held on a total bond amount of $10,000. A jail photo is attached."

The Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned the incident and called on police to charge the woman. 

“The level of vitriol and alleged physical assault against four Indian-American women in Plano is truly appalling,” said Faizan Syed, executive director of CAIR-DFW. “This type of hate has no place in North Texas, and we call on law enforcement to investigate this incident as a hate crime.”  

“As a Mexican-American, I’m appalled that someone would dare use my people’s name to spread hate,” said Nahela Morales, a Mexican-American and Board Member of CAIR-DFW. “As people of color, we need to stand together in solidarity to build bridges of love and understanding, not to bring each other down. To the women in the video, I want to say you don’t speak for our community or me; shame on you. I encourage you to learn about the shared culture between South Asians and Mexicans.” 

Information reads: "This racist attacking these innocent women is Esmi Upton of Plano, Texas. Full name: Esmeralda Armendarez-Upton, she is a realtor for California Federal Bank. She is a parishioner at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Plano, TX.
She wants to be famous for all the wrong reasons."
