A 12 year old's abduction and assault case has taken a surprising turn. On Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013, a young girl reported being abducted and assaulted sexually by a "black man in a black van." She claimed that he abducted her from outside a house on Hope Circle in Waldorf, Maryland before driving her to Pierce Road, where she said he sexually assaulted her.

According to an NBC report, Charles County Sheriff's Office Deputies said that the 12-year-old abduction and assault victim recanted her story later that same day.

There is not much information available about the strange 12 year old's abduction and assault report. The Charles County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement before the girl recanted her story:

The Charles County Sheriffs Office is investigating a report of a 12-year old girl who reported she was abducted outside of an address on Hope Circle at about 4 pm by a black male in a black van.

She reported he drove her to the area of Pierce Road, where he sexually assaulted her.

She reported that she escaped and called 911.

Although it is a relief to learn that the alleged abduction and assault of a 12-year-old girl in Maryland didn't really happen, one can't help but wonder what would inspire a child to make up such a story.
