SOUTH JORDAN — Police now say a woman who claimed she was assaulted in her Daybreak home by a door-to-door salesman made the story up.

Earlier, she claimed a man carrying a clipboard had approached her at the front door in the middle of the day Sunday, and that when she said she wasn’t interested, he went around to the back of her home and broke in, sexually assaulting her.

Lt. Matt Pennington, the public information officer for South Jordan Police, told KSL the woman has since admitted she made the story up.

Police were unable to find any surveillance video, such as from doorbell cameras, to support the woman’s story.
