Central Park sex attack: Three suspects freed after assault 'victim' changes her story
Three young men charged with sexually assaulting a woman in Central Park were freed Thursday after prosecutors lost faith in the victim's flip-flopped story, sources said.
"During the course of the investigation, it became clear they should not be charged," one official said. "Her story changed several times."
The woman first told detectives - and NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly later told reporters - that the teenage trio accosted her at an upper East Side bus stop and forced her into the park, where they attacked her early Sunday.
