GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An outrageous set of accusations claimed a man committed a disgusting act against a child while uttering a racial slur.
But after two days, we find out that the children involved were making it all up.
It started Wednesday when a woman living on Grand Rapids’ Northwest side said that a 5-year-old girl soaked with urine came running to her house. The story that allegedly came from the girl and her friends was that a man urinated on her in an alley in the 1000 block of Leonard Street NW and then used a racial slur against her.
The prosecutor’s office says one of the children urinated on another child, and the story was concocted to avoid trouble. The prosecutor’s office is still conducting lab tests to verify the latest story, but the man was cleared.
