Fresno teen faces charges for false kidnapping report

FRESNO, Calif.

The teen says she was walking home from Bullard High School Tuesday, when she noticed a truck following her. She told authorities the driver got out and tried to get her to go with him.

Investigators say she claimed to have fought the man off with scissors. She eventually got away, and ran to Starr Elementary School for help. They say the teen made up the story, because she was having personal issues at school and at home.
