Police Say 16-Year-Old’s Rape Call Was False
On Wednesday, Deputy Joshua Dubin of the sheriff’s Santa Clarita Station said a call from a 16- year-old girl who claimed she was raped turned out to be false.
Deputies responded to the call made by the girl on Tuesday at about 6 p.m. when she told them she was walking on a bicycle path near College of the Canyons toward the bus transfer station when two men grabbed her.
She said they had put a cloth over her mouth, causing her to lose consciousness, and that she was taken to another area where she was raped.
Patrol officers conducted an extensive investigation. Since she was a student in the area and the crime she reported was serious, the local school was notified, and its administrator’s notified faculty and parents of what they were told had happened.
Detectives continued to investigate the case today, conducting another interview with the girl. She recanted her statement and admitted she fabricated the whole thing.
“Using the legal system to make false claims and carry out personal agendas can have serious ramifications,” said Capt. Paul Becker of the sheriff’s Santa Clarita Station.
“There are people in our community who truly need our help. They shouldn’t have to wait because a person decides to inappropriately abuse the public safety system.”
