Police say girl filed false complaint

Ottawa police say a claim from a ten year old Kanata girl that she was robbed and assault at the Kanata North recreational complex earlier this month, is not true.

Police say the girl alleged a white male grabbed her bag as she exited the changing room...in the short struggle, she fell and struck her head.

But investigators say that, with the cooperation of the child's parents, they have determined that the complaint is unfounded.

No further police action is being contemplated.
