It would be nice to see news reports dig a little and find out why the retraction occurred. But a guess would be regret over a consensual encounter.
And notice the description of the attacker in the last sentence. As multiple stories have shown, the more vague the description, the more likely it is to be false. (But, note that some of the great rape liars concoct stories with incredible detail -- to the point that police actually comment how believable she was.)
2nd rape claim withdrawn at University.
Police investigating two allegations of rape at a university on the same night have said the latest complaint has been withdrawn.
Officers said that following inquiries into the rape of a 20-year-old woman at the University of Glamorgan, in Pontypridd, South Wales, they were no longer looking for suspects.
South Wales Police are still investigating the rape of an 18-year-old student on the campus, which happened on September 26.
A force spokeswoman said: "In relation to the alleged rape of a 20-year-old woman at the University of Glamorgan, South Wales Police can confirm that following inquiries we are no longer looking for suspects and the complaint has been withdrawn.
"Police are no longer investigating this incident.
"An officer has been assigned as a point of contact for the woman and is offering her support for unrelated matters."
Since the rape of the teenager last month, police have launched a series of high-visibility patrols at the university.
Officers were approached by the 20-year-old victim during a patrol on Monday when she reported that she had been raped by up to three men on the same night the 18-year-old was attacked.
Police were first called to the campus at around 4.50am on September 26 after a report that the teenage non-residential student had been sexually assaulted at knifepoint in a friend's room.
Officers are still hunting a 6ft hooded man who wore gloves in connection with that incident.
