    Allegations that a 12-year-old girl was sexually assaulted at gunpoint in Chollas View have been “unfounded,” according to San Diego police.

    “Earlier today, the victim altered her version of the event. The investigation confirms that the case is not a stranger case nor does it involve any adults,” police said in a statement Wednesday.

    The girl originally told police that a masked man pulled her into his car and sexually assaulted her in a ditch on Monday.

    This put schools in the area of 47th and Market on high alert. Police also launched a search for the alleged attacker.
