SHARE Police: Story of attack, kidnapping near CTA station not true

Chicago Police are now saying a person’s story about being attacked and kidnapped Saturday morning near a West Side CTA train is not true.

The female, whose age was not disclosed, initially told police she was attacked about 8:45 a.m. after she got off a CTA train in the 2100 block of South Pulaski, according to a Chicago Police alert issued Wednesday.

She said a man hit her in the back of the head and dragged her into an abandoned building nearby, police said at the time.

Authorities have since determined that her account of what happened was not true, police said Thursday evening.

Police are investigating whether they will file charges against her over the incident.
