Authorities say assault at Holocaust Museum unfounded

Authorities call assault at Holocaust Museum unfounded. (ABC7)

Authorities say an alleged attack reported at the U.S. Holocaust Museum on Sunday is unfounded.

The museum was placed on a nearly hour-long lock down around 3 p.m. after a woman said a brazen attack had taken place inside a bathroom.

Authorities say, after investigating the claim that they never found anyone who could corroborate a man entered the bathroom where the woman claimed the attack took place.

After watching surveillance videos and conducting witness interviews, authorities determined the report to be fake.

A similar incident was also reported on May 6, but officials also called this report unfounded.
