Teen's rape complaint false: police

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 24/05/2016

Nearly two years after a 15-year-old girl claimed she was raped near Hamilton's Lake Rotoroa, police now say it was a false complaint.

They wouldn't go into details of the case.

"However, we did want to provide some reassurance to the local community and visitors to the lake area, who were naturally very concerned about public safety following this complaint," Detective Sergeant Kristine Clarke said in a statement on Tuesday.

In September, 2014 police said the girl was grabbed at knife-point as she walked on Ruakiwi Road and raped near a water tower.
