A woman is being investigated after making up a story about being raped because she was angry that Donald Trump was elected as president of the United States, police in Washington said.
The Kirkland Police Department said that they did not decide whether to charge the woman with filing a false police report.
According to the police investigation, the woman, who was not identified, wrote on Facebook, that she was raped following the recent election.
The woman also wrote that she called the police, but they refused to investigate the suspect or file a report. A concerned citizen who saw the Facebook post, emailed the Kirkland Police Department.
Investigators tracked down the woman, and went to her place of employment.
During questioning, she admitted that she made up the rape story because she was angry that Trump was elected as president.
She did not disclose why she was angry.
“The Kirkland Police Department received an email from a concerned citizen who had seen a Facebook post by a female, stating she had been the victim of a sexual assault in our city and that the Kirkland Police responded, but would not investigate the case or even file a police report.
“The Kirkland Police Department takes all allegations very seriously and the department conducted an investigation to locate the victim in an effort to bring light to the event, but she admitted to making up the story,” police said in a statement.
