A woman has been charged after police said she made false claims that she was attacked. She told police she was trying to get her husband's attention.

Oklahoma City police responded to a home in southwest OKC a couple of weeks ago. Court documents said Cheyenne Pressley told officers she was tied up, held at gun point and raped repeatedly in her backyard.

A probable cause affidavit said Pressley told detectives, "She felt something pressed into her back. The next thing she heard was someone saying," If you scream, I'll shoot," and "If you look at me, I'll shoot."

Reports show Pressley said she did not see the two suspects, but she heard them jump over a fence.

Detectives then searched Pressley's phone finding a video that they said Pressley maneuvered herself where she wanted and then made cries for help.

They said the steadiness of the video indicated a tripod was possibly in use. The affidavit said police also found a "series of photos taken," and she sent the "right one" to her husband.

In a second interview, Pressley confessed to staging the whole thing.

She told police her husband told her he was going to divorce her and "she hoped if he thought she was sexually assaulted it would give her more time with him."
