Newark Teen Makes False Kidnapping Report To Get Back At Boyfriend

NEWARK (CBS SF) — A 15-year-old girl falsely reported a kidnapping on Tuesday in an effort to get back at her boyfriend, according to Newark police.

The kidnapping report was made around 8 p.m. on Tuesday, when a 15-year-old girl told police she had been grabbed and tied up by two males in the area of Thornton Avenue and the railroad tracks, according to police.
