LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WOLO) - A nine-year-old girl is accused of making up a story about a suspicious man, who supposedly chased her to a neighbor's house, after getting off the school bus.

Deputies say no such incident occurred last Thursday, and they add there was never a man in a car waiting for the girl in her Midway Street driveway.

The sheriff's department reports she came clean Tuesday afternoon after refusing to meet with a sketch artist.
