Charges unfounded in sexual assault of 12-year-old girl

-A A +A

By Whitney Jones

An alleged rape of a 12-year-old female was deemed unfounded, according to a Los Alamos Police Department incident report.

The girl alleged that construction workers near or around Los Alamos High School had sexually assaulted her.

 And Deputy Police Chief Kevin Purtymun told the Los Alamos Monitorearly Tuesday that the case was still active.

 But a public records request for the actual report, which the department’s Records Division supplied Tuesday afternoon, indicated that the girl’s allegation was determined to be a fabrication Feb. 17 after a subsequent interview with her.

 According to supplemental notes by Officer Paige Early to t he initial incident report “I confronted [blank] about her claim,” she wrote. “She admitted to me that she made the story up.”

 According to dispatch logs, the incident was originally reported Feb. 9 at 1:32 p.m.

 Purtymun said the girl did not call the police herself, but rather reported the incident to Aspen School employees who then forwarded the claim to the department.
