Sumter County Sheriff's Office arrested a 25-year-old woman on Tuesday for allegedly making false claim about being held against her will and sexually assaulted.
According to a news release from the sheriff's office, Chanay Tresa Bassknight-Wilson, of North Magnolia Street, told deputies that she was held hostage at a residence on Seminole Road and was repeatedly sexually assaulted by different men.
She also told officers that she was threatened at gun point.
A search warrant was issued to verify Bassknight-Wilson's statements and it was later determined during the execution that warrant that those reported crimes did not occur, states the release.
