Woman charged with ‘faking’ home invasion and assualt

A woman who claimed to have been tied up and assaulted at Glenmore Park earlier this month, has been charged with perverting the course of justice after she allegedly faked the home invasion.

Police initiated an investigation in the early hours of Wednesday 4 November 2015, after a 33-year-old woman told them she’d been attacked in her home.

The woman was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics before being taken to Nepean Hospital.


Strike Force Ayre was formed to investigate the claims, comprising detectives from Penrith Local Area Command and the Sex Crimes Squad.

Strike Force Ayre detectives arrested the woman at a home in Glenmore Park yesterday, Monday 16 November 2015 and took her to Penrith Police Station.

Last night she was charged with:

• Pervert the course of justice

• Make false accusation, and

• Public mischief.

The woman was refused bail and held in custody overnight before her appearance in Penrith Local Court later today.
