UA student who alleged parking lot rape facing false report charge

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — An 18-year-old University of Alabama student is facing charges after police say she falsely reported a sexual assault.

Tuesday, police said a student reported being forced into a red Jeep by two Hispanic men and sexually assaulted on Wallace Wade Ave in Solomon’s parking lot area by Bryant Denny stadium.

According to Tuscaloosa police, investigators spoke to witnesses and found video surveillance of the area that did not support her initial account of the incident.

Police say when confronted with the evidence, 18-year-old Emma Mannion admitted to investigators she falsified her report.
