The “Soho Karen” was a long way from home.
A white woman from California is the suspect wanted by cops in the latest headline-grabbing case of bogus accusations allegedly leveled against an innocent black person, The Post has learned.
Miya Ponsetto, 22, was identified by NYPD sources as the woman caught on camera falsely accusing the 14-year-old son of jazz trumpeter Keyon Harrold of stealing her iPhone.
Photos posted online with Ponsetto’s name also appear to match the young woman who melted down in the lobby of the Arlo Hotel in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood and tackled Keyon Harrold Jr. in a vestibule.
“No, I’m not letting him walk away with my phone!” she shrieked at one point, according to a video clip posted online by the elder Harrold.
On Wednesday night, NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison tweeted a montage of surveillance video clips that also included a shot of the woman’s face with the word “WANTED” under it in red letters.
Harrison said the NYPD “is requesting the public’s assistance locating the suspect in this video,” who he said “falsely accused an innocent 14-year-old teenager of stealing her cellphone,,,then proceeded to physically attack him and fled the location.”
Public records show there’s only one person with the name Miya Ponsetto in the US.
That person is 22 and has a last known address in Sun Valley, Calif.
She’s also associated with an address in Simi Valley, Calif., that appears to be her former family home.
CNN has reported that it interviewed the woman involved in Saturday’s incident and said that she’s 22 years old.
The cable network didn’t identify her further, saying that “she said she has concerns for her safety unrelated to this incident.”
The photos of Miya Ponsetto posted online include two professional shots of a varsity cheerleader at Simi Valley High School in California from the 2015-2016 school year.
Those pictures were available for purchase until The Post inquired about them, after which they were first listed as “not for sale,” then blocked from being viewed without a password.
Ponsetto doesn’t appear to have a phone number listed in her name and didn’t immediately respond to email addresses linked to her through public records.
Messages left at two phone numbers listed in her father’s name weren’t immediately returned.
Other numbers listed in the names of other family members either weren’t answered or were answered by people who said they weren’t her relatives.
