Police caution after false rape allegation

Short and sweet. Several things however:

1. If no rape occurred, why isn't she named?

2. Why are police certain this was a false allegation?

3. When will the crime of a false accusation be elevated to the same level as a true allegation of the same crime?

Unknown woman falsely cries rape.
