The Greenville County Sheriffs Office tells us, a 13 year old girl, who claimed she was the victim of an attempted abduction Sunday night in Simpsonville, admitted to them she made up the story.
The girl said it happened while walking a dog on Spring Lake Loop – in the Adams Run subdivision.
Deputies doubt they will charge the girl with a crime, because of her age.
The new details came out when detectives met again with the girl and her parents Monday night.
The teenage girl told deputies a large man tried to grab her and take her into a white van, which sped away from the area when the dog bite the alleged attacker. The neighborhood homeowners association sent out notices immediately after the attack was reported.
The girl told deputies the alleged attack happened about 7:30pm Sunday while she was walking a neighbor’s dog before sundown.
