Frankenmuth Police investigators said a woman's story just didn't add up.
The woman told police a man hid in the backseat of her car and assaulted her, but police found out it wasn't true.
Frankenmuth Police investigators have nearly completed a week-long investigation into the reported assault and attempted robbery in the 200 Block of Franklin Street. The initial report came into Saginaw Central Dispatch on Feb. 27 at approximately 10 p.m.
The alleged victim identified only as a 51-year-old Frankenmuth resident advised first responders that she had been assault by an unknown male whom had been hiding in the back of her car.
Investigators conducted an exhaustive investigation, including followup interviews and neighborhood canvases. They concluded the assault and attempted robbery event didn't happen as originally reported.
Police are working with the alleged victim and her family to get her the assistance required. Authorities said it's unclear why the woman made up the story.
