Boise Police recently investigated two cases of sexual assault. One was reported near the Boise River and the other in west Boise. But in both cases, the women who said they were assaulted later recanted their stories.
Police issued a statement after the second case, saying they don’t want such incidents to keep other women from reporting sexual assaults.
