GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Police say one of four reported attacks on women on or near the University of Florida campus is unfounded after additional interviews with the alleged victim.

University and Gainesville police on Thursday said the woman who reported the attack near a campus library on Sept. 5 now says that no attack occurred.

Police says the false report will not affect investigations into the other three incidents, one of which included a woman being beaten and her clothes and underwear torn off.

Gainesville police spokesman Ben Tobias says investigators still believe a single suspect is involved in the three other attacks, and are continuing increased patrols and other measures to try and identify him.

Police are not filing charges against the woman who submitted the false report.
