Islamophobia

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.”
