Sheriff’s office investigates bogus sexual assault call in Providence

PROVIDENCE – The Cache County Sheriff is reassuring citizens after an alleged sexual assault was investigated at a park in Providence. The incident was reported September 3 in the area of Von Baer Park.

In a press release, Sheriff Chad Jensen said deputies responded to the area after a 911 call was received. A large-scale effort, utilizing patrol deputies and investigators, was initiated in an effort to bring a swift resolution to the incident.

According to emergency radio traffic, the woman told 911 dispatch operators that she was attacked by a tall man with a beard. He allegedly pushed her down, tried to assault her and then flee.

She reportedly suffered scratches during the attack.

Jensen explained that after an extensive investigation though, and working with school and city officials, it was discovered that the incident was unfounded.

In lieu of charges being filed, investigators worked with the Cache County Attorney’s office and Victims’ Advocates to provide assistance to the alleged victim. She was reportedly suffering emotional stress due to an unrelated situation.

Jensen said they are relieved that no assault occurred in Tuesday’s incident. He also reassured the citizens of Providence City that they take all calls seriously.

    Way to go Cache county sheriff’s office another fine job. you’ll let somebody try to ruin somebody else’s life and that they get a walk away with it how is that fair to the person they tried to charge with the charges I think the person should have been charged herself. I’m beginning to think there’s nobody honest in Utah anymore including the cops prove me wrong.

      John we all know Cache county sheriff’s office are corrupt they lied they make me innocent and honest people into but they’re not they’re far from honest but let me make one point some of them are very good people some of them are on us because the general I would say probably 90% or not a cop’s job when he pulls you over his to get you to be putting jail That’s what they do Logan City jail the Cash county jail is a privatized jail they have stockholders how do you think if you on stock and something you want to make money correct. Well that subject was stock market and as a commodity that Cache county jail house is about 300 inmates and they try to keep it as full as possible. So when you say that they are corrupt and not honest you are correct. It’s the biggest gang in the world that’s legalized. One day an attorney is going to come to town and take care of the situation eventually I guarantee it
