The girl has admitted to lying to police about the attack as she wanted to protect a friend’s dog.

The real story is the girl was attacked, but not on the street, but by a friend’s dog at their home.

The dog owner pulled the animal off the girl.

The victim was worried the dog may have to be destroyed following the attack and so made up the bus stop story.

The dog has now been euthanized and the owner faces charges.
