Police Skepticism Increases in Assault Case

Polygraph. Never a good sign.

Police planned to administer a polygraph test to Ashley Todd, 20, because her statements about the attack conflict with evidence from the Citizens Bank ATM where she claims the incident occurred, police said.

Todd, of College Station, Texas, told police she was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in Bloomfield just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her, put a knife to her throat and demanded money.

Todd told police she handed the man $60 she had in her pocket and stepped away from him. The man then noticed the bumper sticker on her car, which was parked in front of the ATM, and became angry, she told police.

He made comments to Todd about Republican presidential candidate John McCain and punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, police said Todd told them.

"He continued to kick and punch her repeatedly and said he would teach her a lesson for supporting John McCain," said police Chief Nate Harper.

The man scratched a backward "B" onto Todd's right cheek, she told police. Todd, who isn't familiar with the area, drove to a friend's house nearby. She told her friend she wasn't sure of the exact location the robbery happened but remembered a green sign above the ATM.

Another report challenges her story:

"This is what she's telling police," police spokeswoman Diane Richard said. "We can't substantiate it at this time."

Ms. Todd then went to a friend's house in the 5100 block of Cypress Street, about a mile away, where she reported the incident to police about 45 minutes later. She declined medical treatment at that time.

A friend said Ms. Todd went to an unknown hospital on her own around 1 a.m.

"The initial report would lead us to believe it was a street robbery," said Zone 5 police Cmdr. Larry Ross.

Zone 5 detectives were handling the case initially, but it was turned over to the robbery squad last night after the case made national headlines.

"Nowhere did she say to the officer that [the assailant] made reference to the bumper sticker. I don't know how she came to the conclusion that he noticed the sticker. Our detectives will spend more time and get a more in-depth report," Cmdr. Ross said.

If she lied, she's given the media something to talk about rather than talking about Obama's enormous donor-fraud conspiracy until the election.

Republicans aren't allowed to fake hate crimes. Only the left is. This should be obvious.
