Woman falsely reported attempted purse-snatching at Ann Arbor park
Ann Arbor police said today that a Flat Rock woman falsely reported to police Tuesday night that she was pulled out of her car at the Furstenberg Nature Area and punched three times in the face.
Detectives plan to seek charges against the woman for filing a false report, according to Det. Sgt. Pat Hughes.
Hughes had no further comment.
The woman reported that at 5:10 p.m. she stopped at the park on Fuller Road just west of Gallup Park to search her car for her cell phone charger because she needed to charge her phone. She told police that as she was in the driver's seat, looking for the charger, she had the driver's side door cracked open because it was getting hot in the car.
The woman claimed a man pulled her out of the car, punched her in the face and attempted to steal her purse, police said. She told police the man ran away. Police said the woman flagged down a driver and called 911.
