Park Attack Revealed As Hoax

The attack of a young girl in Victory Heights Park on July 26th was revealed as a hoax Sunday night.  Sadie, who made the original complaint, had made up the story in order to not get in trouble for leaving the house without permission, her parents reported in an e-mail sent to neighbors. In a statement, they said, “We are embarrassed and saddened by the disruption and cost this has created on multiple levels in our family and in our community.” Sadie was made to apologize in person to officers at the North End Precinct and offered a formal apology letter which has been forwarded to the Sexual Abuse & Child Abuse Unit.

    Thanks for setting the record straight. It took courage for this family to retract the story, but helps us all feel a little safer to know the attack didn’t happen.
