Sex assault allegation withdrawn

Chalk up another one. Since she withdrew, and police are satisfied that no sexual assault took place, this can only be classified as a false report. At least no one was arrested, and no names divulged.

Police satisfied that no sexual assault occurred.

WILTSHIRE Police have halted an investigation into an alleged serious sexual assault in Tidworth after a young woman withdrew her allegation.

The Journal reported last week that the girl was dragged into woodland and assaulted near Beech Hill Road on October 21.

DI Matthew Johnson said: “The woman has since withdrawn the allegation and officers are satisfied from their enquiries that she has not been the victim of a sexual assault.

“Wiltshire Police take any allegations of sexual assault extremely seriously and officers will respond by thoroughly investigating.”
