A Marathon woman was arrested Monday in the early morning hours, charged with making a false report about being attacked while at her boyfriend’s residence.
Deputy Deborah Johnson responded to Fisherman’s Hospital at 1 a.m. on Monday where she met with 30 year old Kristin Rutan Skivers. Skivers told Deputy Johnson she was at her boyfriend’s residence behind the trap yard on 20th Street that night. She said they went to bed at 7:45 p.m. Sunday. She said she woke up at 11 p.m. to find a man “dressed like an Arab”. She said he was holding a gun to her head. She said he forced her to take a blue and white pill he called a “kill pill”. She said her boyfriend then fought with the male and chased him out of the residence. She said her boyfriend told her to drink milk and try to make herself throw up. After she threw up, she said she went to a neighbor’s house and asked the neighbor to take her to the hospital.
She described her attacker as dressed in a long, dark blue garment. She said he had dark hair, a full beard and was wearing a turban on his head. Deputies asked her repeatedly if she was sure this happened; they asked her if she was taking any medication that might cause her to have a vivid dream. She continued to insist the story was true and insisted on signing and swearing to a statement that her story was true.
Sgt. Nick Whiteman and Deputy Annette Simo went to the boyfriend’s residence and spoke to him. He said the two of them were sleeping when Skivers woke up and asked him to take her to the hospital. He said “no” and he went back to sleep. He said she does take prescription medication and goes to the hospital frequently. He said Skivers left the residence at that point. He said at no time did anyone enter the residence or attack Skivers or him.
Skivers was placed under arrest, charged with making a false report to law enforcement.
