Woman who told police she was assaulted is facing charges

A woman who initially told the Hagerstown Police Department that she was assaulted last week in the area of City Park has been charged with filing a false police report, police said Tuesday.

Ford told police that she was attacked by two men at about 3:30 p.m. while she was walking in the area between Walnut Street and the railroad tracks on the northside of the park, according to a previous police release.
