A woman recently made a false police report claiming that she was molested by two men.
The 22-year-old student had claimed that she was molested at Lavender Street at 1.50am on Wednesday, 7 March.
After her report, the police quickly arrived and arrested two men, one 21, and another, 29.
However, after further investigations, the police found that the woman not only knew both men, there were also contradicting elements in the woman's statement.
The police interviewed the woman again and she eventually admitted to making up the story.
It was found that the three had got into a fight earlier and the woman had accused the two men of molesting her to get back at them.
The case is still under investigation and if found guilty of making a false report, the woman faces up to a year of jail time and a fine of up to $5,000, or both.
