A Muslim teen who claimed she was harassed over her religion on a New York City subway by Donald Trump supporters was arrested Wednesday for fabricating the story, has learned.

In actuality, 18-year-old Yasmin Seweid lied to police over the account because she had broken her curfew after being out late drinking with friends, law enforcement sources said.

According to reports, the Baruch College student told cops she was taunted on the Number 6 train by three men who called her a terrorist and tried to yank her hijab off her head while bystanders did nothing to help.

"Nothing happened, and there was no victim," a police source said of the matter.

After her admission, the teen's strict Muslim parents allegedly forced Seweid to shave her head upon hearing that she was dating a Christian, sources said.

Seweid was charged with filing a false report and released after her arraignment early Thursday morning in Manhattan Criminal Court.
