The Muslim teen, arrested by NYPD for making up the Trump supporter NYC subway attack story, also had her angry parents to contend with. To add insult to injury, Yasmin Seweid, had her head shaved by her Muslim-Egyptian parents out of anger about her dating a Christian boy.
Seweid, 18, was arrested by the police and charged with filing a false report, after she admitted to them that she made up the whole NYC subway Trump supporters attack.
Seweid, a business major at New York’s Baruch College, told police she was harassed by three men when she got on the No. 6 train at the 23rd Street station in Manhattan on December 1, claiming the drunken white men taunted her, telling her “you don’t belong here” and referred to her hijab as a rag.
Seweid even posted the “attack” on Facebook, which quickly went viral.
According to the Dailymail, authorities looked at surveillance footage but could not find evidence to corroborate Seweid’s story.
Investigators called in the Long Island teen on Wednesday to work on another sketch of her “attackers” and confronted her with the story inconsistencies.
That’s when Seweid finally admitted to the police that she made up the entire story so her parents wouldn’t know she was out drinking with her friends and came home late from her curfew.
Seweid was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court and showed up with her head shaved, sans hijab.
