Police: Sexual assault near Boise State was false report

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - After a day-long investigation into a reported sexual assault near Boise State University, Boise Police detectives say the victim told them the crime actually did not take place. 

Detectives say they will now turn the report over to prosecutors to review and decide whether charges will be issued for filing a false police report.

The report was originally filed with Boise Police shortly after 9 a.m. Sunday. Officers say the woman told them she was walking underneath the Broadway bridge on the north side of the river when she was attacked by a white male in his 20s. She told officers she was sexually assaulted, but was able to get away.

Again, the victim admitted to detectives that this crime did not actually happen.
