Sex assault false alarm puts school on lockdown, status lifted

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Grand Junction police say just before noon Wednesday they received a report of a sexual assault happening near a school, a report that prompted them to briefly put it on lockdown.

The initial report indicated the suspect was possibly armed with a knife, and since the students were outside police called for a lockdown and the school went into shelter in place mode for about 10 minutes.

The status was lifted once officers investigating the sex assault claim discovered it was a false report.
