Pheasant Creek sexual assault case was a false report

After a thorough investigation, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office has determined the sexual assault that occurred on Dec. 20, 2013 was a false report made by the alleged victim.

The Sheriff’s Office issued a Crime Stoppers press release Friday, Jan. 10, 2014 seeking information about an alleged sexual assault in the Pheasant Creek subdivision.

At first, the woman said she could not recall specific details about the suspect. After a second interview, she said she could recall the suspect’s description and a sketch was completed and sent out with the press release.

After additional investigation, detectives discovered that “the victim” had previously made similar reports to other agencies. Detectives also noted multiple inconsistencies in “the victim’s” account. Detectives once again interviewed the alleged victim, who then recanted her claim that she had been sexually assaulted.

Charges for making a false report are pending against the woman who made the report.
