A woman who lied to authorities about being raped in Silver Spring Township earlier this week was charged Friday with making false reports to law enforcement, police said. On Sunday officers were dispatched around 4 p.m. to the 6600 block of Carlisle Pike for a rape that had just occurred. Cierra Reyes-Benitez, of Mechanicsburg, told police othat she was abducted by two men, forced into the back of a van and raped.
Investigators determined that no assault or rape occurred.
A preliminary hearing is set for July 3.
