GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Grand Junction Police say last night's attempted kidnapping report was a false one and the incident never happened.

Grand Junction Police Department Spokeswoman Kate Porras says the incident which reportedly happened at Canyon View Vineyard Church Tuesday night didn't, actually.

Porras says the case has been sent to the District Attorney's office for review.

Just after 8 p.m. a call came in from Canyon View Vineyard Church on 24 1/2 Road saying an unknown man tried to kidnap a young girl there, then fled on foot after he was unsuccessful.

Porras says the girl told officers a man came up to her as she was walking into the church and tried to pull her away. She claims she then bit the man's arm and ran into the church after he let go of her. Once she was inside the church, she says she saw him run out of the parking lot headed southbound.

Further investigation revealed the incident never happened.
