A teen girl who deputies said told authorities she freed herself from two men who abducted her made the story up, LA County sheriff's officials said.
The 15-year-old told deputies she was "abducted" by two men in Palmdale Tuesday morning, according to the LA County Sheriff's Department Palmdale Station.
She said she was taken away in a van, and that she was sexually assaulted but eventually escaped, officials said.
