A student who reported that she was assaulted on UNC Charlotte's campus on Sunday fabricated the story, according to UNC Charlotte Police and Public Safety. 

The student reported that the alleged altercation happened at 3 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 15 and admitted this week to campus police she had made the story up. 

UNC Charlotte PPS were notified at 10:44 a.m., nearly eight hours after the student said she was attacked. 

This case is now closed.
