Hamilton - Hamilton Police say a teenage girl found naked in an underground
parking garage lied when she said she was sexually assaulted.

Police are considering charging the girl with mischief after investigators
spent six hours investigating her claim that a man sexually assaulted her.

Sergeant Gary Ostofi, police spokesperson, said another teenage girl forced
her to take off her clothes and left her naked in the parking garage as
"payback" for stealing the girl's boyfriend.

The girl admitted lying after victims' services were called to counsel her
and a police dog was used to see if they could track the supposed suspect.
