TURLOCK, CA - Turlock police said a middle school student who reported an attempted abduction near Turlock High School Wednesday made up the story.
The 13-year-old girl had told officers while walking to school she was forced into a black van by a Hispanic male where she fought off an attack by another man while two others watched from the front seat, said Sgt. Nino Amirfar.
When the girl was questioned by the detective assigned to the case, Amirfar said she admitted being pressured by a friend to fabricate the attempted kidnapping.
Upon learning of the alleged abduction Wednesday, Turlock Unified School District officials issued a parental alert.
