TAYLORSVILLE, Utah (AP) - Taylorsville police say a 22-year-old woman who reported she was nearly raped while walking her dog on the Jordan River Parkway made the story up.

Taylorsville Lt. Rosie Rivera said Monday the woman has been cited for filing a false police report and disorderly conduct after telling officers a man attempted to assault her in broad daylight April 17.

The woman told police she was able to fight off a man with a knife who grabbed her from behind.

Police said she had bruises and cuts, and gave them a description of a suspect in his 30s wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

Taylorsville authorities say this is the second time in a little over a year that detectives determined a trail assault report was fabricated.
