‘Mug’ fake news!

New York Post - - NEWS - Abi­gail Gep­ner, Alex Tay­lor

A teen girl who al­legedly held a cabby up at gun­point when she and a pal couldn’t pay the $8 fare is in­no­cent, a woman leav­ing the teen’s home claimed Satur­day.

Hawa Sakho and Dean Ru­fli, both 16, hailed the taxi at 1:30 a.m. Fri­day near East 74th Street and Third Av­enue. They al­legedly socked the hack in the face and stole his phone. The duo was nabbed a short time later. “Hawa is a very good girl,” a woman leav­ing Sakho’s home said. “What they said is not true. I do not be­lieve she has done any­thing . . . this is fake news.”
