A Jewish day school student who sent the Atlanta Jewish community into panic when she claimed she was mugged and kicked unconscious by a swastika-tattooed skinhead Oct. 24 told the police she made up the incident, according to the Atlanta Jewish Times. Local authorities are considering prosecuting the 15- year-old Jewish girl, who painted a swastika and Nazi graffiti on the site of the faked attack, for filing a false police report.
