A Muslim woman who claimed two men attacked her and stole her hijab hours after Donald Trump was elected president Wednesday, told police she made up the story, according to officials.Another hoax. Imagine that.
University of Louisiana at Lafayette police said they received a report of a robbery near campus just after 11 a.m. on Wednesday. In the initial report, the woman said two men hit her, made her fall to the ground, yelled racial obscenities, then stole her wallet and hijab, a head covering sometimes worn by Muslim women.
According to initial reports, the woman said at least one of the attackers was wearing a Donald Trump hat.
"During the course of the investigation, the female complainant admitted that she fabricated the story about her physical attack as well as the removal of her hijab and wallet by two white males," the Lafayette Police Department said in a news release.
