Police: Woman made up church attack story
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – An armed robbery outside San Jose Baptist Church last Wednesday never happened, Jacksonville Sheriff's Office detectives have determined.
A woman said she was attacked by an unknown man with a knife when she was taking out the trash just after 9:15 p.m. She said she ran back inside, locked herself in a storage closet and called police.
That night police said the woman was hospitalized with minor injuries and they found a knife, but there was no sign of the attacker she described.
Police announced Monday the woman fabricated the story. No charges have been filed against her, police said.
