Violent pro-Trump assailants did not steal a car from a San Diego State University student at the center of the anti-Muslim hate crime investigation — she forgot where she parked it.

The incident supposedly occurred in the aftermath of the presidential election, but has been shut down because the Muslim student has “decided not to pursue charges.”

San Diego Police not only failed to find any evidence – they ultimately couldn’t find a victim. The Daily Caller covered the incident last month.

The College Fix reported Friday that San Diego police determined that the car was not stolen from a parking lot.

According to NBC’s San Diego affiliate, the student wasn’t the victim of robbery but of memory loss: she couldn’t remember where she parked her car.

In what seems like reading from a post-election script, the female student said she had been approached by two men who proclaimed their support for Trump before attacking her and stealing the car.

“They were saying things like, ‘Now that Trump is president get ready to start fleeing.’ They proceeded to push her around and she wrestled with them,” according to the student’s friend.

After initial questioning, local police continued to investigate.

“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,” San Diego Police Lt. Greg Noll said.

Similar cases have emerged across the U.S. An almost identical incident was reported at Villanova University, where a student claimed she was accosted and knocked over by several white males who screamed “Trump, Trump, Trump.”  That investigation was also dropped after the student declined to cooperate any further.

In Beaverton, Oregon, as reported by The Daily Caller, Kara Stevens, a 28-year-old black woman, said that two white men driving a vehicle with a Trump bumper sticker threatened to rape and lynch her in a parking lot.
