U.C. police have just announced that a reported rape on campus was all a hoax. Investigators say the 21-year-old woman admitted to lying to police, and said she staged the attack.

Originally the woman told police she was walking on a campus trail last week when a man appeared, beating and assaulting her.

Campus police issued a sketch of the suspect based on her description.

They're now forwarding the case to the district attorney who may file charges for filing a false report.
