Police search the bus station toilets

Comments (5)

A WOMAN sparked a half an hour police search after she told a bus passenger she had been sexually assaulted so that she could use their phone after running out of credit.

She approached a person waiting for a coach at Gloucester Bus Station to say that she had been assaulted in the station toilets.

She asked to use the person’s phone to call a friend but there was no answer.

The passenger then called the police to report the sexual assault.

But after a half an hour search for the offender, Gloucestershire Police tracked down the woman who told them she had made it up because she had ‘ran out of credit’ and had wanted to use someone’s phone to call her friend.

A spokesman for Gloucestershire Police said: “We carried out a full on search for around half an hour until we were able to track down the woman.

“Police officers have since spoken with the woman about her actions.”

    This story could have been a lot worse if the police had arrested someone for the alleged offense, as you may know the record of this arrest will be kept on the PNC indefinitely, they may also have taken their fingerprints and DNA also kept indefinitely. This "Woman" deserves to be named and shamed! Court would not be an option!

    This woman should be charged and sentenced. How casually some women resort to the I'm a victim of male violence at a whim to get what they want. It is brutally cruel to society and no doubt she will get away with it after crying abuse. She needs a good smack that she won't forget.

    Yes, that line could be read two ways. Feckless women such as this one give us all a bad name.

    Please could the author of this piece please reread the first paragraph, and perhaps reword it? It doesn't mean what you (probably) wanted it to mean...
