BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) – A former Sacred Heart University
student has been arrested for falsely accusing two males, one a
football player at SHU at the time, of raping her.
Bridgeport Police have charged 18 year old Nikki Yovino with
filing a false police report and tampering with evidence.
According to police, in October Yovino reported she had been
sexually assaulted by two flack males at a house party. Police
say witness statements and evidence gathered at the time
suggested that a sexual assault occurred. However as the
investigation continued new witness accounts, text messages and
cell phone video contradicted her story. She then admitted to
having consensual sex with both males.
