False accusations: Elizabeth Luque was charged with public mischief, false accusations and false representation over an incident at a Glenmore Park home.
Police allege a Glenmore Park woman gave false statements with the intent of seeing police investigate another man for serious crimes.
Elizabeth Irene Luque was arrested on Monday night and charged with false representation, false accusation and intentionally perverting the course of justice. She was held overnight by police after bail was refused.
Police said she claimed to be bound and assaulted at her home during a break and enter but that she gave three different statements that misled police on their investigation of the incident.
Ms Luque appeared at Penrith Local Court on Tuesday and didn’t seek bail.
In a dramatic scene, during the early hours of November 4 Ms Luque, 33, was attended to by NSW Ambulance at an address on Muru Drive, Glenmore Park.
Reports at the time indicated she was found gagged and bound, possibly unconscious.
Early morning: Police and ambulance were called to a Muru Drive address in Glenmore Park in the early hours of on November 4.
There was a large amount of media attention due to the belief the woman was found unconscious and questions raised about how the ambulance was called to the address.
The woman was taken to Nepean Hopsital for treatment.
Police from Penrith Local Area Command began investigating the incident when the woman told them she’d been attacked in her home.
Strike Force Ayre was formed, comprising detectives from Penrith Local Area Command and the Sex Crimes Squad.
Police said on November 4 they believed the attack to be “targeted”.
People in Glenmore Park were fearful after it was announced the attack was targeted.
A person who lives in the same street said there weren’t any noises they could hear from the house on the night in question.
‘‘My window was wide open [all] night,’’ she said.
“It’s not very far from my house — I can see their house out the window.
‘”My daughter woke constantly last night so I was up with her and I didn’t hear anything.”
A woman who lives on the street said she spoke to people at the scene on November 4, who indicated the phone believed to be used in the emergency call was found near the woman.
Detectives arrested the woman at a home in Glenmore Park on Monday.
Police believe the statements she gave about the night were intentionally false.
In documents before Penrith Local Court police say they received statements from Elizabeth Luque describing an “aggravated break and enter, sexual assault, and deprivation of liberty.”
Police said she requested an investigation into the apparent home invasion and sexual assault and specified a man she asked police to investigate for the crimes.
No internet access: Police asked, because bail was refused, that Elizabeth Luque be restricted from internet access and contact from the man she wanted police to investigate.
Police told the court she intended this man “to be the subject of an investigation of an offence”.
The Gazette has decided not to name the man Ms Luque accused.
Since then police have arrested the woman and accuse her of lying about the incident at the Muru Drive house and have not arrested the man she indicated should be investigated for the crimes.
Police told the court Ms Luque supplied police with “three false statements intending to pervert the course of justice”.
Documents before the court said the three statements took the form of “two electronic statements and a signed statement” over the course of the investigation.
The charges police put were listed with the court as a show cause offence, meaning there is a higher bar to be cleared before bail is agreed upon.
The Bail Act states bail must be refused unless the defendant can “show cause” as to why it should be
Due to bail being refused, police asked the court that Ms Luque be “restricted from internet access and have no contact” with the man she claimed had committed assault, a break and enter and bound her.
The Crimes Act indicates a person who is found guilty of false accusation is “liable to imprisonment for seven years”.
A person found guilty of false representation, also known as public mischief, could be sentenced to a year in jail.
Those guilty of perverting the course of justice are liable for 14 years imprisonment.
Ms Luque will appear again before Penrith Local Court this week.
Police have urged anyone on Muru Drive, Glenmore Park who saw something suspicious between 9pm and 3am on November 3-4 to call Penrith Police on 4721 9444.
