WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue University police say a student has retracted her report of a sexual assault on the West Lafayette campus last weekend.

Campus Police Chief John Cox said Tuesday that the department’s investigation concluded the initial report of an assault occurring Saturday night was untrue.

Cox says the false report is unfortunate, but he wanted to make sure the campus community was aware of it and ease any concerns the initial report might have caused.
