A Zeeland woman who claimed she was the victim of a crazed, knife-wielding attacker in an Ottawa County park has now recanted her story.
Osborn may face charges from the Ottawa County Prosecutor...
According to The Grand Haven Tribune:
"Capt. John Wolffis of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department said during the investigation into the assault, the woman told deputies the incident did not occur.
Initially, the woman had told deputies that she was sitting on a bench in the park in Port Sheldon Township overlooking the river when a man grabbed her from behind, held a knife to her neck and told her to shut up.
The incident report will be forwarded to the Ottawa County Prosecutor's Office for review." Her story a few days ago was different.
According to The Holland Sentinel:
"The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a suspect who assaulted a woman in Hemlock Crossing Park on Monday, Nov. 2.
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies were dispatched to the park at 6:27 p.m. after the victim called 911 to report the assault. The victim, a 33-year-old Zeeland resident, said she was near the river about a quarter of a mile into the trails.
The woman told deputies she’d gone to take a walk in the woods and was sitting on a bench overlooking the river when a man grabbed her from behind, held a knife to her neck and told her to shut up. She told deputies she was able to fight him off and he fled back through the trails toward the parking lot.
She described the man as having dark brown hair and wearing a grey hoodie."
