Gonzales told her employer she had narrowly avoided being taken and forced into a blue truck by men unknown to her, according to police.JPD officers responded to the alleged incident in the 9100 block of Glacier Highway.
“In general when things like this occur, we talk to witnesses, canvass for potential witnesses and review video from area security cameras,” said JPD public safety manager Erann Kalwara in an email.
Officers determined there was no disturbance or attempt to kidnap Gonzales during the investigation, according to police. Gonzales was cited and released for falsely filing a police report on Thursday.
