Woman arrested on suspicion of making up sexual assault story

Danielle_deichman A 20-year-old woman was in custody Friday on suspicion of filing a false police report after she allegedly made up a story that someone tried to sexually assault her in Laguna Niguel.

Danielle Deichman at first told Orange County sheriff's detectives a man grabbed her from behind and knocked her to the ground at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday as she was walking along La Paz Road, officials said.

But inconsistencies in her story led them to reinterview her Thursday, when she admitted to them that she had lied, authorities said.

Deichman also admitted using details in her story from another reported attack Jan. 25, when a woman was assaulted along Alicia Parkway in Laguna Hills.

It must be a lonely un-attracted woman that needs attention.

So young, what a loser!!

What a whack job. Put her in a mental hospital, where she belongs.

Throw her in jail.

throw her butt in jail

give her the same amount of prison time an alleged suspect would have gotten if her lie held up
