UNH assault report fabricated, police say


Police said a University of New Hampshire student made up her story when she reported that two men assaulted her while trying to take her wallet. UNH Police Chief Paul Dean said the woman recanted her story. She originally said she was near Rudman Hall on Academic Way Wednesday night when the men grabbed her. She said she fought off her attackers, striking one in the face. University police officers and campus service officers increased their patrols as a result. Dean said he is aware of circumstances that would explain why the woman fabricated the attack story. He said the university is reviewing its options, including bringing criminal charges.
