Woman who changed story about location of 'sexual assault' charged with making false report

Portsmouth police allege woman lied about rape

PORTSMOUTH - Police arrested a Strafford woman Friday on charges she told police she had been raped when she had not.

Corey Krongard, 22, with a last known address of 139 Ridge Farm Road, reported to police that she was sexually assaulted early the morning of June 4 by a man whose name police declined to release.

Police said Krongard first told them she was assaulted in the bathroom of The Page Restaurant and Bar and then later said the incident occurred at the Hanover Street parking garage. The charges allege the entire story was fabricated.

Krongard is charged with two counts of false reports to law enforcement, the first alleging she lied about the rape and the second that she told police her name was “Lindsay Conrad” during their investigation.
