Woman lied that a police impersonator sexually assaulted her

Her identity is protected (unlike any number of men who are named in stories based on nothing more than a lone accusation of a rape by a woman). And there is no indication that she will be charged for what police have determined is a crime.

Police: Woman's report of police impersonator, sex assault proved false

ELKHART COUNTY — Investigators announced Friday that a claim made by a woman on Tuesday that a police impersonator pulled her over and sexually assaulted her is false.

The Elkhart County Sheriff's Department said that after numerous interviews and a review of phone records, police were able to determine the claim to be a fabrication.

Police say that despite this was a false claim, it's still important to make the public aware of these incidents and that they should stay as safe as possible should such an incident occur.
