Attack in Kittitas County Campground Made Up
Kittitas County Sheriff's Detectives say a Cle Elum woman lied about being attacked by a strange man while camping at French Cabin Creek camp grounds according to our news partner KNDO.
Kittitas County Sheriff's Deputies took a report from a 25-year-old female who claimed to have been assaulted by an unknown white or Hispanic male while in her sleeping bag in the morning hours of July 15th.
"The investigation took a turn when the detectives were unable to verify certain details or locate the witnesses the woman named. She also changed certain details when the detective attempted to clarify her story."
During a final interview Wednesday afternoon, the woman acknowledged that she had made up the entire story to cover a relationship.
The Sheriff's Office will file charges for false reporting.
