A 28-year-old Stevens Point woman was hospitalized after getting attacked on her way home from downtown early Sunday morning, according to a news release from the police department.
The assault happened on Church Street near Matilda Street.
The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic man, with a thin-to-medium build who was wearing a dark blue polo shirt at the time.
Meanwhile, the release also stated there are posts circulating on social media with concerns this may be related to a report of a 37-year-old woman who said she was attacked on Thursday, June 28. Officers said the report has been "thoroughly investigated and found to be a false report filed by the alleged victim."
The news release said officers viewed videos from businesses along Church and Division Streets that revealed those claims were untruthful.
