🔴 Anjela Borisova Urumova told police she was assaulted in a parking lot

🔴 Detectives found "multiple inconsistencies and contradictory" information

🔴 Urumova admitted she made up the attack


MIDDLETOWN BOROUGH, Pa. — A woman who told police she was raped in the parking lot of a grocery store in April admitted she made up the story.

Anjela Borisova Urumova, 20, of Bristol Township told police she was attacked the night of April 16 at the Redner's in the Langhorne Square Shopping Center. She identified Daniel Pierson as her assailant who was charged with multiple attempted rape and kidnapping. He was held at the Bucks County Corrections Facility.

Bucks County Attorney General Jen Schorn said an investigation, which included a review of security footage and a forensic review of Urumova’s cellphone data revealed "multiple inconsistencies and contradictory" information in her account of events.

All made up

When Urumova was confronted by detectives she admitted lying and that no assault had taken place. Urumova said she targeted Pierson because she had seen him in his truck before.

All charges were dropped against Pierson and he was released from the Bucks County Correctional Facility after 31 days behind bars.

Urmova was charged with one count each of false alarm to an agency of public safety and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, two counts of false reports and three counts of unsworn falsification to authorities.

She is being held at the BCCF on $30,000 bail.
