TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Police now believe a woman was lying when she told authorities she had been kidnapped and raped before hiding out under the front porch of a Tulsa home.
Sgt. Gary Stansill of the Tulsa Police Department's Sex Crimes Unit says several witnesses debunked a 22-year-old woman's claims that she was held against her will for two days beginning on April 6.
A Tulsa resident found the woman hiding under his porch when he
returned home from walking his dog.
Stansill says police are frustrated because the investigation tied up officers who could have been working on legitimate cases, and he added that the woman could face criminal charges for giving a false report.
