WARNER ROBINS -- Reports on social media of gang initiations involving attacks on women are not true, according to a Warner Robins police news release issued Friday.
The false rumors spreading across Facebook and Twitter involve gang members targeting women, jumping out from behind bushes, beating their vehicles with bats and sexually assaulting them, the release states.
“We ask that the public ceases from spreading this rumor on social media websites,” the release states. “Please remember that knowingly posting false information on social media causing the public to panic is illegal.”
