    East Palo Alto Police Say Kidnapping, Assault of Teen in November Didn't Happen
    NBC Bay Area

    East Palo Alto police announced Wednesday that a kidnapping and sexual assault of a teenage girl reported in November did not occur.

    Police had said the 17-year-old girl's mother called police around 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 2 to report that three men kidnapped her, forced her into a black van with tinted windows and sexually assaulted her.

    The girl said she was driven to another location where two men sexually assaulted her and then threw her from the van, injuring her ankle, police said.

    Police said Wednesday that after an extensive investigation that involved witness interviews, reviews of video from the area, telephone records and another interview with the reporting parties, officers determined there is no merit to the allegations.
