Otsego Co. Prosecutor Charges Woman with Filing False Police Report

A woman who claimed that she was kidnapped and assaulted in Otsego County in March has been charged by the Otsego County Prosecutor’s Office with filing a false police report.

Back in March, a woman claimed a man got in her car, held her at gunpoint and sexually assaulted her. The woman told police she managed to escape and call for help in Elmira.

Dozens of police crews responded with K-9 units to look for the suspect. About a week later, police determined that the kidnapping and sexual assault never happened.
