Police: Kedron cart path sex assault report was bogus

Nothing denoting why the false claim was reported, or what led police to doubt the charge. At least she was jailed for it.

LaDonna West Chavez arrested for false report

A 30-year-old woman has been arrested for fabricating a story Aug. 27 that she had been sexually assaulted by a man on the Peachtree City golf cart path system near Lake Kedron.

Police have determined that the report made by the woman was false, officials said.

LaDonna West Chavez, 30, of Barberry Lane, Peachtree City, has been charged with making a false crime report and also uttering false statements and writings, police said in a news release late Wednesday afternoon.

Chavez initially told police she was approached from behind by a white male who forced her to the ground and sexually assaulted her around 5:30 a.m. Aug. 27. Chavez did not call police immediately but officers were summoned after she sought treatment at Piedmont Fayette Hospital, police said.

Chavez told officers the incident occurred on the path near Lake Kedron and the cul-de-sac of Samiel Point and Larkins Landing.

The news release gave no reason for why the woman turned in a false report.

Chavez was taken to the Fayette County Jail to await her appearance before the Fayette County Magistrate Court for bond, police said.
