MARIN CO. (CBS SF/BCN) — The Marin County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday that a report of a man grabbing a 15-year-old girl while she was jogging in the Lucas Valley area last week was fabricated.

The girl said she was jogging along a path around 6 p.m. on Feb. 1 near Mt. Rainier Drive when a suspect came out from behind foliage and grabbed her face, then she punched him and was able to run away, sheriff’s officials said.
