Muslim Girl Who Alleged Harassment By Trump Supporters Charged with Filing False Report

A Muslim college student who alleged she was harassed by Trump supporters earlier this month while riding a New York City subway was arrested on Wednesday, PEOPLE confirms.

Yasmin Seweid, 18, was charged with obstructing governmental administration and filing a false report. She is awaiting arraignment at Manhattan Central Booking, a spokesman tells PEOPLE.

The New York Post reported that inconsistencies appeared in her allegations when authorities pulled a surveillance video to confirm her story. When she was confronted by police, the Post says she admitted to making up the story to distract her angry father for having gone out late with friends.

Her father, Elsayad Seweid, was not immediately available when PEOPLE reached out for comment.

Seweid alleged in a Facebook post that she was singled out by a group of self-proclaimed Donald Trump supporters as she rode the subway home following a fashion show at her school the night of Dec. 1.

 

His daughter alleged on Facebook that three men approached her, calling her a “f–king terrorist.” She did her best to ignore the men, but they continued to pick on her, she alleged.

“Take that rag off your head,” one man allegedly said as he grabbed her handbag. “Go back to your country. You don’t belong in this country.”

She wrote: “It breaks my heart that so many individuals chose to be bystanders while watching me get harassed verbally and physically by these disgusting pigs. Trump America is real and I witnessed it first hand last night! What a traumatizing night.”

Seweid was reported missing to the Nassau County Police Department about a week later by her worried father after his daughter failed to come home.

The college student was found “safe and sound” less than a week after being reported missing, her father told PEOPLE at the time.

Seweid was found at a friend’s house, a police source confirmed to PEOPLE.

“She is home,” Elsayad Seweid told PEOPLE. “I can’t really say anything else right now, but she is safe and sound.”

Does this sound familiar, like some of the BS, the trolls and BLM'ers post and complain about.

Hope they prosecute to the full extent of the law.

I'm not for sending troops to Syria but I'm all for sending the immigrants back if and when there is a stable government. I can't figure out why those thousands of young men that left Syria didn't just stay and fight for what they believe. We sure didn't leave the US to find sanctuary when the British were fighting us in 1776.

Better yet, let's send the Syrians back to fight instead of sending Brits and our military.
