Orem woman accused of false rape report

OREM — An 18-year-old Orem woman was booked into the Orem holding facility for investigation of filing a false police report.

Orem Police Lt. Doug Edwards said the woman reported that a man had forced her to the ground and tried to rape her on the lawn in front of her home. When she resisted, he reportedly stabbed her three times with a Swiss Army knife.

Upon arrival at Timpanogos Hospital, police noticed too many inconsistencies with the woman's story, Edwards said.

Police learned that the woman had been treated two hours earlier at another hospital for self-inflicted stab wounds.
