False Report

On yesterday’s date, 11-18-08, the Frederick Police Department received and begun an in-depth investigation into an Attempted Abduction report involving a 12 year old female victim. The female victim had reported that a white male driving a white pick up truck had grabbed her and attempted to pull her into his vehicle in the area of the 200 block of Broadway. The Frederick Police took the female juvenile’s report seriously, and investigated the alleged crime accordingly. On today’s date, as the investigation continued to become more broad and a follow up interview was conducted with the alleged juvenile victim, she confessed that she had made the entire story up and that the incident never happened. She confessed when she realized that the investigation was becoming very involved and bigger than she thought it would be. The juvenile was accordingly charged as a juvenile with making a false report, and she was released to the custody of her parents.
