Counseling services are being made available for a Valley City (N.D.) State University freshman who made a false report about an attempted abduction.
The woman reported that she was jogging near the VCSU campus about 9 p.m. Wednesday when three men in a vehicle attempted to abduct her, said Valley City Police Chief Dean Ross.
But when investigators questioned her again on Thursday, “there were just a few clues that didn’t seem right in her statements,” Ross said.
The woman then admitted she made up the story about the abduction attempt, Ross said.
