Student’s rape claim found to be false

Athens-Clarke County police have stopped the investigation surrounding a University student’s alleged rape, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

According to ACC police Capt. Clarence Holeman, the 20-year-old student originally said she was raped in the bathroom of Bourbon Street bar early Tuesday morning.

After watching security tapes from the bar, police determined the student’s claim was false, Holeman told the AJC.

“At no time did it show the alleged victim going into the bathroom, or going into the bathroom with a male,” he told the AJC.
