    Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a murder-suicide in Berks County. Investigators say a woman distraught over the breakup of a relationship killed her 11-year-old daughter and then herself.

    San Diego police determined Friday that a reported sexual assault in Barrio Logan did not actually occur.

    On Monday, a 31-year-old woman had just gotten off the bus near the corner of Sampson St. and Logan Ave. around 8 p.m. Monday when she said she was knocked to the ground.

    After several days of investigating the reported incident, they determined that the woman was not sexually assaulted.

    "There are no suspects being sought, nor is there any cause for concern to the public," a statement from the San Diego Police Department read.

    The reported assault would have happened just days after another attack involving a public transit stop. On Sunday morning at the Lincoln Park trolley station, an 18-year old woman was waiting for the trolley when a man approached her and then sexually assaulted her.

    Officials did not believe the two incidents were related.
