First one cop came to the house and asked if we had heard any screams. Hmmm,, no. difficult child and E were over last night and we were watching YouTube videos as I baked, we were laughing our asses off and wouldn't have heard a thing! He was vague and said, 'There was an incident on the street next to the side of your house' .... Us: What kind of incident? Cop: We think domestic. Well, he lied. About 45 minutes later, a cop from the town next door, with his k9 and a state trooper came up our back lawn. They elaborated on the story and why they were out there: Seems a local girl (15 yrs) ws walking home and she claims that a white male all in black jumped out of the woods and held her at knifepoint and tried to rape her. She said she was able to fight her way out of it and run home. Okay, I know I may sound ridiculous, but I swear to you...where we live, this just doesn't happen. Yes, I am doubting the story from the get go. So as the k9 cop is talking he says it's the house next door to us, which is about 500 feet away through the woods. I know this family. Their only daughter is 15 and they're a fairly keep to themselves type of family. I don't know them well, but at that age? Hmmm, it struck me a wee bit difficult child-ish. Maybe she fabricated this story to deflect the attention away from something she may have gotten in trouble for, like smoking or drinking? difficult child asked me, and this is rich, lol, 'Why would anyone lie like that?' I nearly fell on the floor laughing my ass off. I just looked at her and finally she said, 'Right, never mind.' lololol. About 45 minutes later another cop comes to our door, this one was from the water district metropolitan police-they know the terrain and trails through the woods. He asked us all the same questions and took our names. He said even though they question the girl's story,they had to investigate. No word this morning on what, if anything, came of it. An aside: when difficult child was speaking with the k9 cops (from another town) about a local kid who fit the description, he turned to here and asked our house number. After she told him, he asked her if there was a kidnapping Internet related incident at our house!! Omg, poor difficult child stumbled through her 'yes' and when she came in she was clearly shaken. She needed a Xanax to calm down. I mean, WTH? I'm so upset they asked her about that, why not me? Hello? he told her he was only asking in case it was related since her assaulter is out of jail and may be in the area for retribution. Seriously, I want to call them and blast them for saying that!
