MARION CENTER, Pa. (AP) - State police say a 16-year-old western Pennsylvania girl who reported finding a razor blade in her Halloween bubble gum made up the incident and self-inflicted a cut in her mouth which took 23 stitches to close.

Troopers from the Indiana, Pennsylvania barracks aren’t releasing the girl’s name and didn’t immediately say whether she’d face criminal charges for the hoax.

The girl reported receiving the razor in a piece of bubble gum she received during a community event in the Marion Center area. That’s about 60 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The event involved 22 people who registered to hand out Halloween treats out of their vehicles at a school parking lot in East Mahoning Township.

More than 300 children received treats, and nobody else reported that anything was tainted.
