ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) St. Cloud police now say a man who originally reported being assaulted and robbed in the city over the weekend has recanted the story.
The 22 year-old St. Cloud man told police he had been beaten and robbed by two men in the 500-block of First Street South between midnight and 1 am Saturday morning.
He told officers his keys had been stolen during the robbery, along with cash from his wallet.
On Sunday, the St. Cloud PD issued an updated news release saying the robbery did not occur. According to the victim, he did not recall being threatened or assaulted by anyone, and due to his intoxication level, it's unclear whether his keys and cash were taken by someone, or lost.
