(Lebanon) -- Police say a 61-year-old midstate woman who claimed she was attacked and robbed by a man had actually just fallen over.

Lebanon police say they plan to file the woman with making a false report about the incident last Wednesday morning.

The Associated Press isn't reporting the woman's name because court records show police have yet to file the false report charge.

Police say the woman claimed a man came up from behind her and hit her in the leg with a small souvenir-sized baseball bat.

She says that caused her to turn around quickly and fall over, enabling the man to take the money she kept on her walker.

An unknown good Samaritan drove the woman to a hospital after finding her on the sidewalk.
