A TEENAGE girl who said she was kidnapped at knifepoint in Sydenham has admitted she made up the entire story.
The 16-year-old claimed she was grabbed by a knife-wielding balaclava-clad man in Sunnydene Street, off Sydenham Road, in the early hours of August 2.
In her account to police three days later the teenager said she was then driven three miles to Lewisham Park where she ran off.
An investigation was launched with leaflets appealing for information handed out in the area.
