Medford Police report arresting a man for rape last month and then releasing him after learning the woman who accused him made it up. Now they want to arrest her.
A woman who identified herself as Amanda Rodriquez reported to the Medford Police that she was sexually assaulted in Medford by a Medford resident. As a result of the detailed statement that she gave the detective, that man was arrested for the sexual assault.
Later that day, the detectives determined through follow-up investigation that this woman lied about the assault and her identity. The man was promptly released from custody.
We need to identify this woman in the photo to charge her accordingly for filing the false report.
If you know her, contact Det. Patricia Sullivan at 781-391-6767 ext. 257.
