Police: Attempted Kidnapping of Sioux Falls Woman Not True
Sioux Falls Police Spokesman Sam Clemens says a woman now says she was not the target of a kidnapping attempt on Friday night.
"The initial report came in on Saturday night. A woman said she was walking with a friend and a van drove past. She told police people in the van tried to abduct her and tried to force her into the van," said Clemens.
"The detective was able to track down everybody involved, including the suspect. He found out that wasn't the case. There was a drug component to this. At this time, there hasn't been any arrests or charges. But, we know who everybody is. The story we found out happened was a little bit different than what she initially gave."
Clemens says the people in the van were apparently trying to get items, not the woman.
