A Pennsylvania man spent a month behind bars before a woman admitted to authorities that she lied about an attempted rape and attack in a grocery store parking lot.

On April 16, Anjela Borisova Urumova, 20, claimed she was attacked by a man, Daniel Pierson, from behind after she parked her truck in a Redner’s parking lot in Middletown Township, according to a criminal complaint obtained by WPVI.

Urumova claimed the man pulled down her pants and punched her in the face before she was able to escape.

More than a month after the incident, however, investigators said they uncovered multiple inconsistencies with her account of the alleged attack.

Police said they used data pulled from the woman's cell phone as well as surveillance video from the parking lot, which allegedly contradicted her story of events.

On May 17, detectives met with Urumova for a second time and she allegedly admitted she lied about the purported incident and that no assault occurred, the criminal complaint shows.

When detectives asked her why she alleged Pierson attacked her, she allegedly said she saw the truck and Pierson in the parking lot of her previous employer in the past and thought he was “creepy,” officials said, claiming she then used the description of her then-boyfriend’s clothing to describe Pierson.

According to police,Urumova's grandmother, who reportedly battles dementia, didn’t recognize her as she entered the house and threw a plastic object at her, hitting Urumova in the lip, causing the laceration on her lip, which she blamed on Pierson.


Urumova allegedly said she was planning on coming forward to reveal the false report “some point before court," police claimed.

After the initial allegations, police used a license plate reader to track down and arrest Pierson.
