Hitchhiker report comes up false


The Douglas County Sheriff's office says, a report of a sexual assault by a hitchhiker does not match up.


A 32 year old Mattoon woman told police she was sexually assaulted by a hitchhiker, now she is changing her story. She is now admitting to making a false report to law enforcement.


The results of the investigation will be sent to the Douglas County State's Attorney's Office to determine what, if any, charges are appropriate.
