A report by a woman who says she was indecently assaulted while walking on the Harrisburg Area Community College campus last Monday night has proved to be false.  During an interview with city police investigators, the victim recanted parts of her previous statement.  The investigation concluded that no crime had occurred at all.

Harrisburg City Police say the woman making the false claim will not be charged. She instead will be referred to other county agencies for help.
