Girl recants rape report; may face charge of making false report
BELLEVIEW - An 11-year-old girl may be charged with making a false report about being abducted by a man and raped, according to authorities.
Thursday, the girl told Belleview Police Department officials that a black man kidnapped her at knife and gunpoint from her Southeast 54th Avenue neighborhood and took her to a wooded area behind the Publix Supermarket off U.S. 441, where she was raped.
Police say the neighborhood was on edge while they investigating the alleged incident.
Now, officers say, little girl has recanted her story and said she made it up because she did not want to get in trouble with her parents for messing up a piece of furniture.
Authorities say the case is being reviewed by the State Attorney’s Office to determine if criminal charges will be filed.
