COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — UCCS police say an assault that was reported on campus last week did not occur as originally reported.

Police originally said a student reported being grabbed by a stranger near the Roaring Fork dining facility around 9 p.m. March 13. Based on video evidence and interviews, police later determined the incident did not happen as reported by the student.

Police said it turned out the incident didn’t happen on campus, and didn’t involve a person the student did not know.

Police said there is no threat to the campus community from the incident.

University officials said the student will not face false reporting charges.
