PULLMAN, Wash. - Police at Washington State University say a woman who filed a false police report of assault has recanted a second report as well.

Three assaults were reported on the Pullman campus this month, but police say a woman has recanted two of the three reports.

A third assault is still being investigated. Police say that report was filed by a different woman. WSU Police Lt. Steve Hansen says the only confirmed assault happened in the early morning hours of August 24.

The false reports, filed by the woman who has now recanted both, alleged that assaults took place on August 19 and in the evening of August 24.

The suspect description remains the same. In the assaults, the suspect was described as a white male about 5'9" and had a stocky build. The suspect was described to be wearing a hooded sweatshirt and shorts.

Anyone with information in the remaining investigation is asked to call Washington State University Police at 509-335-8548.
