Police: Woman falsely reported rape

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - Police said a woman lied when she told them she was forced into a van and raped by two men in Cumberland County over the weekend.

Silver Spring Township police said Thursday that the woman filed a false report and no assault or rape occurred.

The investigation is ongoing and criminal charges will likely be pursued against the woman, police said.

The woman had told officers that she was walking in the 6600 block of Carlisle Pike when two men quickly approached her and forced her into the back of a van Sunday afternoon. She said the men then drove to an alley and raped her, according to police.
