Philadelphia police have called off their search for a suspect in a sexual assault after they determined that a woman lied about the attack.

Police now tell Action News that the 18-year-old woman made up the story of a man who approached her and offered to help when she had locked her keys in her car.

The woman had told police the attack happened Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia's Tioga-Nicetown section.
