Owner of Downtown PDX Food Cart Arrested For Assaulting Customer with Gatorade Bottle and Sriracha

The owner of a downtown food cart was arrested on misdemeanor assault charges this afternoon after hurling a Gatorade bottle at a black customer and then allegedly spraying her with Sriracha.

A video taken by the alleged victim, Carlotta Washington, was provided to Willamette Week by an eyewitness. It shows Islam Elmasry, owner of the Small Pharoah's halal cart, arguing with Washington, who claims that Elmasry called her the n-word after she attempted to pay for her lunch with quarters.

The video shows Elmasry telling her to "get the fuck away" from the cart, then throws a Gatorade bottle at her, causing her to drop her phone.

Washington says that Elmasry then sprayed her with Sriracha chili sauce, though that is not on the video.

1. As progressive as it is, PDX is remarkably racist. I lived there for two years.

Oregon, in general, is even worse. Its original state constitution forbade black settlers.
