Police: Texas Teen Fabricated Abduction Report
Police say a 15-year-old girl fabricated a story claiming she had been abducted and held captive at a West Texas home.
But Lubbock police say sexual assault charges are forthcoming against men living at the Lubbock home where the girl stayed.
Sgt. Jason Lewis says she likely was involved in prostitution and that at least one of the three men will be charged because of her age. He says she was not held against her will.
The girl ran away from home in Amarillo in mid-May and came to Lubbock a week or two later.
She told officers she was abducted from Amarillo and held at the home for about two months. She claimed she crawled out of a window and fled to a McDonald's restaurant where she called police.
