Report of abduction attempt near Valley City State University was false

VALLEY CITY, N.D. – A report of an attempted abduction near the Valley City State University campus was a false report, police said today.

A woman reported that she was jogging near the VCSU campus Wednesday evening when three men in a vehicle attempted to abduct her, Police Chief Dean Ross said.

When investigators questioned her again today, the woman admitted she made up the story, Ross said.

A police report is being forwarded to the Barnes County prosecutors for consideration of charges for giving false information to law enforcement, Ross said.
