NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The Muslim teen who said she was verbally attacked by three drunk men on the subway last week and had been reported missing Friday has been found, according to Nassau County Police.
Authorities have not said where she has been the last few days, but her family tells WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall that she is safe.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, was last seen leaving her New Hyde Park home on Wednesday, police said.
She was wearing a black jacket, blue sweater, black yoga pants, and black head scarf and carrying a bag of clothing.
Last Thursday, Seweid told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco that she was on the 6 train heading home from a school event when she was verbally attacked by the men, who she said made references to Donald Trump and called her an “f-ing terrorist.”
“They kept saying, ‘you don’t belong here, get out of this country, go back to your country,’ and finally they came really close and they were like, ‘take that rag off your head,'” she said.
