LOVES PARK, Ill (WIFR) -- A Rockford man who told Loves Park officers that two men on bicycles robbed him, will now face a charge of filing a false police report.

Willie J. Jones, 57, told police he was robbed around 8:30 a.m. Friday in an alley in the 200 block of Riverside Boulevard. Investigators say Jones claimed the suspects had a gun and a knife and took cash from him.

After officers looked into Jones' account, they determined it was all made up and charged Jones in the case.
