A 57-year-old Jewish woman and her daughter were beaten up at a Queens subway station by a drunk who mistook them for Muslims, police sources said Thursday.
“Get out of my country, you dirty Muslim!” the 40-year-old suspect, Dimitrious Zias, allegedly ranted.
He repeatedly punched the mother in the face and body, and socked her daughter, 37, in the face, repeatedly pulling her hair, sources said.
The suspect was arrested at the scene and charged with assault as a hate crime.

The incident happened 2 p.m. Wednesday at the 67th Ave. subway station on the R line in Rego Park.
The women were leaving the station, heading up the stairs, when the suspect, who had been drinking, came up behind them, sources said.
The mother waived the suspect past, at which point he allegedly derided her as a “dirty Muslim.”
The daughter jumped in and got into an argument with the suspect, then the suspect attacked them, sources said.

Zias has one previous arrest. In September 2015, he was busted for using his cellphone camera to take a picture under a womans skirt at the Uniqlo clothing store in Midtown.
He pleaded guilty to felony unlawful surveillance and was sentenced to five years’ probation, authorities said.
In an unrelated bias crime, a Muslim vendor in Bushwick was punched in the back of the head and cursed at when he told three Hispanic men he didn’t have change for a $20.
It happened at about 8:25 a.m. Wednesday morning at Stockholm St. and Wyckoff Ave., where the victim was tending to his food cart.

“Motherf—-r, you Muslim,” the suspects said. “Go back to your country.”
The 53-year-old victim did not require any medical treatment.
He told police he didn’t want the men arrested, but the NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is still investigating.
