A San Diego State University student who initially reported being pushed and verbally assaulted by two men in a parking garage has decided not to pursue charges, SDSU Police said Tuesday.
A Muslim student wearing a hijab told police she was confronted by two men in a stairwell in the Parking Lot #12 structure on November 10.
She told investigators the men, described as in their early 20s, made comments about President-elect Donald Trump and the Muslim community and then took her purse and backpack.
SDSU Police confirmed the report and launched an investigation into what they described as a hate crime. Eight weeks later, the student was not willing to testify and decided she no longer wanted to pursue the matter criminally, according to police.
In the initial report, police said the men took the woman’s car keys and ran off. The student’s vehicle was missing from the parking garage.
The student’s report of a stolen vehicle was unfounded since the student forgot where she had parked, SDSU Police Lt. Greg Noll said.
“The remaining portion of the investigation included looking at all surveillance video, re-contacting the victim on several occasions and attempting to verify statements related to the entire case,” Noll said.
Although the woman has indicated she was attacked, police have suspended the case because the victim no longer wants to cooperate, Noll said.

“The student wearing a traditional headscarf and full Islamic clothing was in a stairwell when two men — 20 to 25 years old, one white, one Hispanic — stole her purse and backpack. They ran off with her car keys,” the station matter-of-factly reported.
The unidentified woman said the two men denounced her for her Muslim beliefs and taunted her about Trump.
“They were saying things like, ‘Now that Trump is president, get ready to start fleeing,’” the alleged attack victim’s friend, Alisha Sharif, told San Diego Fox affiliate KSWB-TV. They proceeded to push her around and she wrestled with them,” Sharif described.
Now, eight weeks after the attack, the woman has decided she doesn’t want to press charges after all.
In 2015, the Muslim Student Association at San Diego State demanded that school officials develop a formal policy outlawing certain political speech including “Islamophobic speech” and, in fact, “bigotry towards any other identity group.”
She should be charged with the hate crime and incitement. She should also be financially liable for wasting taxpayer resources on the faked incident.
SDSU is a hotbed of jihadi activity. Jihad preacher Anwar al-Awlaki was an alumni of the same school.
And what is the likelihood that this unnamed Muslim supremacist was among those Muslim Students Who Trapped and Terrorized San Diego State’s Jewish President?
