THE HAGUE - A Dutch woman who reported being the victim of a mugging has admitted to making the whole thing up.
The 21-year-old woman from The Hague told police that two men robbed her by putting a knife to her throat and threatening her two-year-old daughter.
The police took her story seriously and put five officers on the case, but began to have their doubts due to the lack of evidence. The woman eventually admitted that she had not been robbed.
The police are planning to make her pay for the investigation.
