QUINCY (CBS) — Quincy Police announced Monday that the report of a woman being attacked in Russell Park one week ago was fabricated.
On March 25, a 49-year-old woman told police a man grabbed her from behind, threw her to the ground, and stole money from her purse while she walked behind the park’s tennis courts.
“As part of a thorough investigation, detectives reviewed surveillance in the area of the crime scene. When Detective Eddy re-interviewed the alleged victim, she confessed that she had made a false report,” said police.
The woman will now be summonsed to Quincy District Court for filing a false police report.
