Girl withdraws claim she was raped at Lusher, NOPD says

The teenager who claimed she was raped at Lusher charter school now says it didn't happen.

According to New Orleans police, the girl withdrew her claim during a forensic interview with outside experts. Detectives have now determined that there was no sexual assault.

Last week, the 16-year old student reported that she had been attacked by someone she did not know at about 9:30 p.m. on the school's Freret Street campus.

Lusher administrators say they are working on the issue with the girl's family.
