Detroit — Two men who claimed they were robbed and assaulted while downtown early Saturday made a false report, police said.

Detroit police originally issued the report saying the two men were walking around at 3:20 a.m. on Griswold and Michigan when they were approached by an alleged suspect.

The men, 19 and 28-years-old, claimed they were robbed of their possessions and punched in the faces by the suspect.

However, Detroit police said investigators found no proof of a robbery and said the men made up the false statements after they got into an altercation with each other.
