Forrest City Girls Lie About Abduction

OCTOBER 7, 2005 - Posted at 4:22 p.m. CDT

 

FORREST CITY, AR - Police at Forrest City say they have arrested two students at the local junior high school after they lied to officers about being kidnapped from the school.

The two 14-year-old girls told police they were kidnapped Monday by a man at gunpoint and taken to some tennis courts.  The girls said they were told to stay there and that the man would keep an eye on them.  The girls told police they "got away after the man left after seeing police drive by several times."

Police investigating the incident reviewed security video from the school and determined there had not been a kidnapping.  It turns out one of the girls' mother caught the girls running back to school after heading to campus to check her daughter out for the day.

The girls admitted making up the story and were charged as juveniles with filing a false police report.
