Chollas View assault reported by girl proves to be false

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 12-year-old girl, who claimed she was forced into a vehicle at gunpoint by a masked man in Chollas View and then sexually assaulted, fabricated the story, authorities reported Wednesday.

The child told San Diego police the kidnapping occurred in the area of 47th and Market streets early Monday evening.

During follow-up questioning, she "altered her version of the event," Sgt. Mike Holden said.

"(She) has confirmed this case does not involve a stranger or a firearm," he said.

It was unclear why the girl made the false report.
