  • A 20-year-old North Dakota State University student has been arrested for allegedly concocting a story about being abducted and raped.
    The woman was arrested Tuesday night. She did not immediately make a court appearance to be formally charged.
    Campus police say the woman on Sunday night told authorities that a man wearing a ski mask forced her into a vehicle in a parking lot and drove her to another location, where he sexually assaulted her. The reported prompted a community alert.
    After an investigation, police arrested the woman on suspicion of falsely reporting a crime to law enforcement, a misdemeanor. Authorities say in an email to students that there is no threat to the campus or surrounding area.
