An Alabama woman was arrested Saturday after she lied about her former boyfriend breaking into her home, raping her then tying her up, police said.

Smith said after she was sexually assaulted, the man tied her legs to her bed, secured her hands and left. The investigators discovered some of the statements Smith gave were false and looked into the claim further, AL.com reported.

Investigators contacted Smith’s former boyfriend and discovered he was in a different state at the time of the alleged sexual assault. Law enforcement in the state he was visiting – they did not say where he was – corroborated his alibi, Hood said.
