ALLENDALE TWP. — Police said Tuesday that an alleged sexual assault at a party near Grand Valley State University’s Allendale campus this past weekend appears now to have been a false report.

The criminal sexual conduct report was made on the morning of Nov. 3, Capt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said. The incident allegedly happened during a party at the Alpine Student Living Center on Lodge Drive in Allendale Township on Nov. 2.

Detectives have since spoken with several possible witnesses and the person who reported the incident, Bennett said Tuesday.

“At this point in the investigation, it does not appear as though a sexual assault occurred,” Bennett said. “And further, it does not appear that any of the party-goers had been drugged.”
