Woman from Bucks Co. accused of lying about attempted rape and kidnapping – NBC10 Philadelphia

A Bucks County woman is accused of falsely accusing a man of attempting to rape and kidnap her outside a convenience store in April.

On Monday, May 20, 20-year-old Anjela Borisova Uromova of Bristol Township, Pennsylvania, was charged with false alarm to a public safety agency, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, false reports and unsworn falsification to authorities.

Uromova initially accused a man — who we are no longer naming because charges against him were dropped — of attacking her on April 16 outside the Redner’s store on Lincoln Highway in Middletown Township, Pennsylvania. Uromova claimed the man grabbed her. her from behind after she parked her truck in the parking lot. She said she struggled to escape and the man tried to pull down her pants, punched her in the face and tried to move her to his vehicle. Uromova said she continued to scream and scare him.

The man was later arrested in Bristol Township and charged with attempted kidnapping, attempted rape and other crimes. He remained in captivity for 31 days.

During the investigation, Middletown Township Police collected and reviewed surveillance footage from multiple retailers in the area where Uromova claimed the attack occurred. A detective from the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office also reviewed Uromova’s cellphone records. The investigation led to the discovery of multiple inconsistencies and conflicting information from Uromova, investigators said. On Friday, May 17, detectives spoke with Uromova about the inconsistencies. She subsequently admitted that she had lied about the entire incident and police determined that an assault never occurred, investigators said.

Uromova was arraigned Monday and remanded to the Bucks County Correctional Facility under a $30,000, or 10 percent, bond. The man, meanwhile, was released from the Bucks County Correctional Facility on May 17 and all charges against him have been dropped.

Information about Uromova’s legal representation is not currently available online.
