15-year-old Manchester girl lied about assault behind a convenience store

The 15-year-old juvenile female that reported she was assaulted, on April 9th, 2013 in Manchester, PA, is now saying that she lied.

A Northeastern Regional Police detective has been working hard on this case coming up with suspects, and has shown the “victim” several photo line ups with no suspects positively identified. This week the detective met the victim at the crime scene where she confessed that she had lied about the incident and that it did not happen.

She advised that she lied about the incident because she was walking home with a male friend, and they were flirting, and she was afraid they would get in trouble. At this time the Northeastern Regional Police is closing the case since there are no real suspects, and no danger to the public. The York County District Attorney’s Office has advised the police department not to file charges for False Reports in this case.
