Grand Forks Police say 24-year-old Reid Peterson of Grand Forks faces a charge of giving a false report to authorities.

According to the P-D, on Saturday night, Peterson said he was in his vehicle on the 200 block of North 6th Street, when a male approached him, and threatened him with a handgun. Police were told the suspect did not take anything, but fled the scene. The suspect was described as a black male with a chin-strap-style beard.

After further investigation, police determined that Peterson made-up the story.

Police say a charge of “false report to law enforcement” was forwarded to the Grand Forks County State’s Attorney’s office for review.
