Pines Teen Arrested For Lying About Attempted Abduction

PEMBROKE PINES (CBS4) – Pembroke Pines Police have arrested a 16 year-old girl for concocting a bogus story about an attempted abduction at a bus stop.

They have charged the teen with filing a false police report.

After hearing the claim by the teen, police released a sketch and asked for the public’s help in finding the man.

The teen said she was standing corner of 82nd Avenue and Florida Drive Monday afternoon when a man approached her from behind and grabbed her arm, attempting to pull the girl into a nearby Ford Mustang.

She told police that she was only able to free herself after the man’s fingers became entangled in the rubber bracelets she was wearing.

Authorities say the girl fessed up several days later, admitting to making up the story.
