Sexual assault 'unfounded'

Police now say a woman's complaint about a sexual assault by a stranger was false.

Shortly after 1 a.m., Thursday police said the woman said she was walking on Egerton St. near Cameron St. when she was assaulted by a man and dragged into a laneway on Cameron St. just south of Hamilton Rd. and sexually assaulted.

The suspect was last seen running west on Cameron St.

The victim managed to flag down a passing police cruiser to get help.

But police said further investigation revealed "the report was determined to be unfounded and there will be no further police investigation."
