Rape victim changes story, says she was not carjacked
St. Louis – St. Louis Police Chief Joe Mokwa says the department is doing everything it can to catch an accused rapist.
A woman originally told police she was abducted at gunpoint from her car at a stoplight at Hampton and Chippewa on the city's south side, then raped. She later admitted the abduction scenario was a lie, but stood by the rape allegation.
The 30-year-old woman now says she was assaulted by a man after they had used drugs together.
Mokwa says the fact that it was not a random act of violence should alleviate the fears of people in the area where the crime occurred.
