A woman in Rhode Island is facing a lawsuit after making false police reports about a little boy’s whereabouts that left the whole town in a frenzy.

Daniela Peraza Lemus of Central Fall got herself nose deep in a legal issue following a bizarre incident involving a 2-year-old boy. According to the reports, the woman allegedly pretended to be a Good Samaritan who found a lost child and handed him over to the cops.

The incident took place just before Dawn on Sunday. Lemus reportedly called the Central Falls Police, saying she found a boy alone beside a highway on her way home.

According to her, she was riding home in an Uber when they came across the little boy almost wandering into the highway in Pawtucket. Her driver refused to get involved, prompting Lemus to take the child to her apartment before calling the cops.

Officers reached her Central Falls apartment shortly after and found the scared-looking child with dirty feet and a small scratch on his face.

They took him to the Hasbro Children’s Hospital to ascertain his state of health while kicking off a nationwide investigation to determine his identity and the location of his parents.

The investigations, with the help of the local media, yielded several dead ends. Finally, the boy’s mother suddenly stormed the Pawtucket Police Station, looking frantic, emotional, and anxious.

She was shocked to discover her son’s face was all over the news. The woman disclosed she rushed to the station after her child’s babysitter called to inform her the police took her child away for no reason.

The alleged babysitter turned out to be Lemus, the same woman who reported finding the child on the highway. Further investigations revealed the 22-year-old attended a party at the boy’s mother’s home the previous day.

She offered to take the boy for a sleepover after a fight broke out at the party to protect him from DCYF involvement. However, she apparently got tired of watching the 2-year-old and decided to cook up a story to have the cops get him off her hands.

Central Falls police captain Craig Viens described the incident as the saddest thing he’d encountered in 21 years. Lemus' concocted story not only put the police in a tight position but also left the whole community in panic.

After being interrogated, Lemus could hardly give any reason why she opted to make up an outrageous story rather than call the boy’s relative to say she could no longer watch the kid.

Pawtucket Police have since charged her with filing a false police report, which is a misdemeanor attracting a $500 fine and up to one year in prison.
