Police: Sexual assault report at TMCC was a hoax

Truckee Meadows Community College Police said Tuesday that an earlier report by a student that she was beaten, robbed and possibly sexually assaulted, was a hoax.

Officials said video evidence confirmed the woman was not on campus during the time she said the incident occurred on Oct. 19 in the Dandini campus parking lot, said TMCC spokesman Kyle Dalpe.

The student later withdrew her claims, and police say she will not be charged at this time.While the report was false, officials said they encourage people to continue to be vigilant with personal safety and always immediately report suspicious activity.
