NYPD confirms they've arrested Yasmin Seweid, who said she was attacked on subway, for filing false report
Yasmin Seweid was arrested on Dec. 14 for filing a false police report and obstructing government administration, police said.
A woman who told police she was attacked by drunk Donald Trump supporters while riding the New York City subway was arrested Wednesday for allegedly fabricating the entire incident, authorities said.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, told police and the New York Daily News that she was harassed by three drunk white men who shouted the president-elect’s name while attempting to remove her hijab on Dec. 1.
“Look, it’s a fucking terrorist,” she alleged they said in a Facebook post. “Get the hell out of the country!” (Her entire Facebook account has since been deleted.)
The Brooklyn-born woman also alleged that no other commuters came to her aid.
“Trump America is real and I witnessed it first hand last night! What a traumatizing night,” she wrote.
Police had said they were investigating the incident, and on Wednesday an NYPD spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that Seweid had been arrested for obstructing government administration and reporting a false incident.
Sources told DNAinfo New York that officers had spent “significant NYPD resources” trying to verify Seweid’s story but could not locate witnesses or video of the incident.
The woman reportedly recanted her story on Tuesday, DNAinfo reported, allegedly saying she made up the story because of family problems.
The woman’s father told DNAinfo she was “young and maybe she was foolish here.”

Yasmin Seweid is a young Muslim woman who reported to New York police that she had been accosted by drunken white men calling her a terrorist and chanting "Trump" at her.
She has now admitted that the story was made up and has been charged for making a false police report. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/yasmin-seweid-teen-accused-of-making-up-story-of-anti-muslim-harassment-on-nyc-subway/
Here is the first report which includes the typical reaction from the New York chapter of CAIR.
Had this incident truly happened, I would condemn it and hope that the perps were caught. The problem is that too many of these reported "hate incidents" against Muslims are manufactured. This not only causes police to waste hours and days investigating hoaxes, but also adds to a false narrative that Muslims in America are under attack. The truth is that Christians and other religious minorities in Muslim lands are under attack. I mean churches burning and physical attacks including murder.
That, of course, would never justify treating American Muslims in that manner. Two wrongs don't make a right. I don't doubt that some Muslims have received some less than friendly treatment, which may or may not be criminal in nature. Unfortunately, organizations like CAIR are hysterically using "incidents" like this to cry out to the world that American Muslims are under attack. When a true hate incident against a Muslim occurs, how can we believe it given all the false reports?
I will believe it when the police make arrests. Until then I have to take it with a grain of salt.

Another anti-Muslim hate crime has been debunked, this one in Ann Arbor, Michigan, after a Muslim student’s claim that she was threatened for wearing her Muslim headscarf was discovered to be a hoax.
Police now say a false report was filed by a Muslim University of Michigan student, who told police several weeks ago that a man threatened to light her on fire if she did not remove her hijab as she walked down the street in Ann Arbor. The unidentified student claimed her assailant was a white man, whom she insisted sounded like he was drunk, Fox 2 reported.
School officials issued a “safety alert” to students, and police immediately launched an investigation into her hate crime report.
However, a review of surveillance video from businesses along William and State Streets, the area the woman said the assault took place, provided no evidence of a man matching the description she provided. Even more damning, no evidence was found that even she had been there that day.
This week, Ann Arbor Police Lt. Matthew Lige said there was not enough evidence to substantiate the woman’s claim, and the incident is now being deemed a hoax.
Officials are weighing whether the woman will be charged with filing a false police report. She may also be hit with a felony charge because her report of “ethnic intimidation” is itself a felony.
