Teen faces falsification charges over abduction claim


A 14-year-old girl who told police that someone tried to abduct her from a downtown bus station has been charged with falsification, police said.

The girl told police a man tried to grab her while she was waiting at a bus stop near Washington and 14th streets on Jan. 16, and she allegedly provided police with a false description for a sketch.

Investigators said that the girl’s statements did not match evidence. Police Sgt. Kevin Braun said they are not sure how the girl suffered serious injuries, believed to be a result of the “abduction.”

The investigation is ongoing, Sergeant Braun said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stopper program at 419-255-1111.
