Sex assault report was false

The Delta Police says a reported random sexual assault in April didn’t actually happen.

A woman originally claimed she was attacked from behind while walking in Sunbury Park in the early morning hours of April 12. The assault provoked significant public outcry at the time, amid three others that month in the Lower Mainland.

However, in a follow-up meeting the woman confirmed the attack did not take place and recanted her statement, said a news release Tuesday.

“We understand the community was very troubled by news of the alleged stranger sex assault in the park,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police.
