BLUFFTON, S.C. – Beaufort County Deputies said Tuesday that a reported sexual assault near Avalon Shores did not happen.
The report was made Sunday night, but further investigation revealed inconsistencies in the juvenile female’s story. The juvenile eventually admitted to making up the story to avoid consequences at home.
Deputies say she was afraid of getting in to trouble for walking off from a party she attended with her parents to be with some friends.
Investigators will be filing a petition with the Family Court in the interest of the juvenile female for the offense of Filing a False Police Report.
