IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Iowa City Police say a woman has been charged with filing a false sexual assault report with them.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Johnson County, Elizabeth Marie McDonald, 21, filed a detail report with police in February saying that she had been sexually assaulted.

During the investigation, police say McDonald did not tell the truth in that report and that she was making contact with the suspect without police knowing.

They say that during a recorded call with McDonald, she admitted to making up the assault to get back at the suspect "out of spite".

McDonald is charged with False Report of Indictable Crime to Law Enforcement.
