New York - Police say a woman who claimed she was slashed in the face by a stranger in Lower Manhattan has recanted her story.

The New York Police Department said Friday that their investigation revealed that the woman’s wound was self-inflicted.

They say the 20-year-old woman was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

Police say the woman reported a random attack Thursday afternoon and told police a man grabbed her and slashed her on the left side of her face. Police say she told them that the man called her a terrorist during the attack.

Authorities say her injuries aren’t life-threatening.

This should bring pause to everyone who believes that women never make up stories.

Please tell us all how you know the woman was Muslim. Neither her name nor her description is given in any of the news releases about this matter.

Wrong. She was wearing a hijab, and claimed the slasher called her a terrorist. Who else but a Moslem would be called a terrorist? A nun? A WASP? A Filipino? Of the very few supposed attacks on Moslems, many, as this one, turn out to be fraudulent.
