Teen reported for false assault claim

A teenage boy has been reported for falsely claiming he was sexually assaulted at Beulah Park in Adelaide's eastern suburbs.

The 15-year-old told police he was followed by three men in a white van along Beulah Road early on January 20.

He told police that the men approached him and two of them held him down while the third sexually assaulted him.

Police have been investigating the incident for weeks, launching appeals for witnesses to come forward and releasing images of a van.

They now believe the report was fabricated.
