The 12-year-old boy who reported his attempted abduction to authorities on Friday was lying about the incident, according to the police.

Police determined during the course of the investigation that the boy who reported the attempted abduction, which he said took place at the parking lot of Plantation Central Park, was “not being truthful,” according to a statement from the Plantation Police Department.

The initial report said the boy was being followed by an SUV driven by a man who got out and grabbed him by the arm and told him to get inside the vehicle. The boy said he hit the man with his tennis racket and ran away.

No word yet on why the boy lied and no charges will be filed at this time, police said.
