— An Oklahoma State University student who reported she was raped at knife point on campus has recanted her story.

The woman initially said her attacker threatened her with a pocket knife and followed her to her room in the Village D apartments early Thursday. But during police interviews Monday, she told officers that she had been speaking with the accused attacker for hours, then went downstairs to allow him into her apartment complex and room, according to a news release.

The incident was reported to police Friday afternoon.

She has declined to pursue criminal charges.
