A 13-year-old girl will be charged after authorities say she lied about being held at knifepoint by a man who ripped off her headscarf.
The teen told police that she was in the area of Jato Court and Riverview Lane in Woodbridge on April 6 around 4 p.m. when an unknown man approached her.
She said the man put a knife against her arm and called her a "terrorist." She claimed he then covered her mouth to muffle her screams and removed her headscarf before fleeing.
Investigators say they determined that the alleged encounter never happened.
Detectives have obtained a petition, charging the teen with knowingly filing a false police report.
