NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston police say a woman who claimed she was forced into her own trunk during a robbery confessed that she made the whole thing up.

According to a report, 27-year-old Natassja Ross has been charged with filing a false police report and breach of trust over $2000.

At 9:40 p.m. on Sunday, the North Charleston Police Department responded to the Carrabbas on Northwoods Boulevard where Ross had walked into the restaurant and said she had just been robbed across the street at the Wells Fargo ATM.

Ross claimed the suspect walked up behind her while she was at the trunk of her car and shoved her in.

Police say the suspect then grabbed the Ross' maternity bag which contained bank deposit bags. Ross claimed when she got out of the trunk the suspect was already gone.

The suspect, who Ross described as a white male having facial hair around his mouth, wearing a black shirt, black pants and a blue ball cap, was made up.
