Suspended Weather Woman Claims She Never Said 'Rape

Crime

The suspended New York City weather woman who police say falsely told them someone tried to rape her, has come out and denied that she ever used the actual word "rape."

Heidi Jones, who works for WABC and fills in on the network's "Good Morning America," said through her attorney on Friday that she never told cops she was raped.

"The press accounts that say she alleged rape or attempted rape are inaccurate," said her attorney, Paul Callan, to the New York Post. He declined, however, to say what exactly Jones told police.

The NYPD is standing by its story: Jones told them in November she was jogging near Central Park when a Hispanic man came behind her and tried to rape her. When they looked in to her story they couldn't find any evidence. They say she later admitted it was false.
