Woman Claims She was Assaulted Downtown, Wasn't

Downtown was abuzz a couple weeks ago with the news of the assault of a young woman in an alley downtown. Jack recalls walking past the police cruiser with its flashing lights parked at the mouth of the alley that night.

Late last week a little bird told me that the mugging was a hoax, that the woman had made it up. The first story she told the police was so improbable that she recanted it and provided a second story. Which also turned out to a fabrication.

The Bulletin's story is here (paywall).

The little bird tells me that the police have no idea what really happened, but there was no assault.
