Reported kidnapping a hoax

July 8, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Local police, the FBI and the state police swung into action Tuesday afternoon after a reported child abduction, but it didn’t take them long to figure out it was all a hoax.
“We’re happy to report there was not an abduction at all,” Detective Sgt. Matt Ryan announced at a press conference about two hours later. “The story was fabricated by our witness.”
The investigation began about 12:30 p.m. after a juvenile reported seeing four men kidnap a young girl on Vose Street. Police wouldn’t say whether the witness was a boy or a girl.
