Cops: Teens fabricated story of kidnapping, attempted rape

WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) -

Three teens who told Walterboro Public Safety officers they were kidnapped at gunpoint and almost sexually assaulted made up the story to avoid getting in trouble, officers say.

According to an incident report, three female teens claimed they were kidnapped at gunpoint by four suspects from Edisto Terrace Apartments around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 22.

The girls, aged 13, 13, and 15, said the suspects tried to rape one of them, but she was able to fight them off. The girls said they were later forced out of the suspects' car at Wal-Mart.

Officers say they noticed inconsistencies in the girls' statements after reviewing video from Edisto Terrace and Wal-Mart.

The girls were re-interviewed, where officers say they admitted to making up the kidnapping and rape allegations to avoid getting in trouble.

All three girls were charged with filing a false police report.
