POLICE: Liberty Lake Woman Made Up Assault Story

Posted: Updated:
LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. - Liberty Lake Police say a woman who told them she was assaulted in late January made the whole story up. 

Police told KHQ on Wednesday the woman fabricated the story in order to get pity from her co-workers because she was at risk of losing her job. The woman is now facing charges for Filing a False Report. 

Police want to assure the public there is no threat in Liberty Lake, and there never really was, but they have to treat each case as a credible report.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - There's a new fundraising effort to help the victims of the shooting at Freeman High School. About a dozen volunteers, many with ties to the school, came together on Tuesday night to make metal bracelets. They hammered the words "Freeman Strong" onto the front, with a volleyball and a cheerleading megaphone on the sides -- since the three girls who were wounded in the shooting were on the school's volleyball or cheerleading team.
