NYPD: Woman made up story about Manhattan slashing attack
(AP) -- 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.
