Canada: Report of shocking Oshawa sexual assault false, police say

Article here. Excerpt:

'A report of a sexual assault that led police to canvass an Oshawa neighborhood and issue repeated calls for tips from the public has been determined to be false.

Durham police said Thursday that the report, first received May 1 from a resident in the Ritson Road and Olive Avenue area, was untrue, and that there is no risk to the public.

“After looking into this incident and working with the complainant (investigators) have concluded this event did not occur,” police said in a media release June 7.

The initial report, made May 1, was shocking: A woman reported a man knocked at her door about midday, asked about a nearby house for sale, then forced his way in and sexually assaulted her. The report said the man fled after the woman fought him off.
There was no indication from police the complainant would face charges.

“Investigators are working with the complainant to ensure she receives appropriate assistance and support moving forward,” police said.'
