An Amboy woman is accused of falsely reporting a crime after Mankato Police say she reported a rape that never happened.
The criminal complaint shows 31-year-old Anna Harroun reported the sexual assault in early October, claiming that the man raped her in August. She provided specific information about what she claimed was a non-consensual encounter.
However, some of the evidence collected included text messages between Harroun and the man she accused, including one that read she intended to drop the charges, was coerced and made it up.
In a follow-up interview, investigators say Harroun admitted that she had a consensual sexual relationship with the man, he had not raped her, and that a third party coerced her into making the claim because she’s pregnant. She also said that person was threatening to take her babies away if she didn’t file the report.
