MASSAC COUNTY -- Authorities say there is no truth to social media rumors about a wave of violence at Fort Massac State Park.

Metropolis Police Chief Harry Masse does say one woman claims to have been attacked and robbed at the park Friday night. She was cut on the neck and treated at Baptist Hospital.
 
But Chief Masse says there are inconsistencies in her story and that investigation is ongoing.
 
Police are stepping up patrols at the park, Masse says, as a precaution.
