Police: Gillette Woman Faked Kidnapping
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A 19-year-old woman who was found tied to playground equipment in a Gillette park has been ticketed for making a false report.
Police Sgt. Joe Baird tells the Associated Press the woman told officers she had been kidnapped by two men outside her apartment, was taken to the playground and tied up Jan. 18. But she later acknowledged making the story up to get attention from her mother.
The woman was taken to the hospital because she complained of a sore shoulder, but she was released a short time later.
Baird says it appears she was the only one involved.
