KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A man who says he was robbed on the Western Michigan University campus last week is now changing his tune.
Newschannel 3 first reported on the alleged crime Friday after the university posted a warning asking students to be cautious following an assault near the Michigan Avenue roundabout.
However, the victim’s story wasn’t adding up and surveillance video showed no evidence of such a crime.
Now the victim says the assault actually happened on Oak Street. He apparently made up the part about the assault occurring on campus in the hopes that the crime would be solved quicker.
