Woman Who Said She Was Raped In Riverside Park Yesterday Now Recants Her Story

A 44-year-old woman claimed she was raped in Riverside Park, but cops say she has since recanted her story.

The unidentified woman told officers she was walking near Riverside Drive and 74th Street around 5 a.m. on June 6 when a man approached her from behind, told her he was a "cop and an F.B.I. agent," and dragged her into the park where she said he raped her. But officials say the woman, who has been described in some reports as homeless, recanted her story last night.

No arrests were made after the claim.
