STAMFORD - A woman is facing charges after Stamford police say she lied about being kidnapped and sexually assaulted.
Officials say Mercedes Irizarry, 25, told police her ex-boyfriend and another person kidnapped her at knife point last month, then kept her in an apartment on Ursula Street overnight.
Investigators say Irizarry's ex-boyfriend was deported two years ago, and they found video of her at the time she said she was being held hostage.
