Richmond police say robbery and abduction story was a false report

Posted by Terry Alexander

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A reported robbery and abduction from the Richmond Coliseum apparently never happened.

Friday night, police say a coliseum employee told them he was forced into a van and robbed.

He said he was later able to escape.

Now officers say the man lied about what happened.

They are now treating this as a false report investigation, but haven't said whether any charges will be filed.
