Police: Woman filed false rape report

Orlando police have arrested a woman they say made up a story about two men raping her.

Jacquelynne Ashley Thomas, 20, claimed that two men pushed her inside her apartment on Raper Dairy Road on Nov. 26 about 6:15 p.m. and raped her, investigators said.

Police arrested her Tuesday on charges of unlawfully filing a false police report and giving false information to a law officer to mislead or impede an investigation.

Thomas was released at 12:18 p.m. Tuesday on $750 bail.

Reached at home, she told the Orlando Sentinel that she pleaded not guilty.

"I know it happened" she said. "I had bruises all over me."
