A woman who not only claimed that she was sexually assaulted, but also disparaged how the local police department refused to investigate has admitted she fabricated the entire story.
Earlier this month, The Kirkland, WA police department received a tip about a woman who was posting on Facebook that she was sexually assaulted and that Kirkland PD responded, but refused to file a report or investigate the incident.
As this was news to Kirkland PD, they tracked down the woman making the claims and discovered what really happened.
Apparently the woman made up the incident and police response because she was “distraught over the recent election.”
No charges have been filed and the woman’s name has not been released, but Kirkland PD released the following statement:
“The Kirkland Police Department has worked very hard to gain the trust and cooperation of the citizens of Kirkland and continues every day to build on this trust through transparency and accountability.
False reports such as this can cast doubt on an agencies reputation.”
