The report of a weekend sexual assault on the walking trail near the Fluvarium in St. John’s was false, RNC Const. Steve Curnew told media today.
The woman who made the allegations will not be charged.
Curnew said that decision was made at the discretion of the officers investigating.
Some six to seven RNC officers were involved in the investigation.
Curnew did not say what the woman's motive was.
He said police want to dispel fears in the public about an attacker on the loose on the popular St. John's trail.
