Police have called a press conference this afternoon and are expected to say that the inconsistencies in the story of a McCain campaign volunteer who told them she was mugged by a man who cut a "B" on her cheek when he saw a McCain sticker on her car have led them to believe it is a hoax.

Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, spent more than five hours with robbery detectives last night at police headquarters, giving investigators details that differ from the initial police report after the incident - including that she was sexually assaulted and lost consciousness during the attack.

Because of the inconsistencies, Ms. Todd agreed to take a polygraph test, police said.

McCain volunteer says she was mugged, had 'B' cut into face

Pittsburgh Police are investigating a report by a campaign volunteer for John McCain that she was mugged and the letter B was cut into her face following a robbery in Bloomfield last night.

Police say that Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, reported that the attack occurred around 9 p.m. after she withdrew $60 from an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street.

She said a man armed with a knife demanded her money. She gave it to him and began walking toward her car, which has McCain stickers.

Although the robber had moved away from her, he became agitated when he saw her car, punched her in the back of the head, pushed her to the ground and carved a B into her face, she reported.

"This is what she's telling police," police spokeswoman Diane Richard said. "We can't substantiate it at this time."

McCain worker says man scratched 'B' into her face

A knife-wielding man robbed a McCain-Palin campaign volunteer and etched a "B" into her face after he saw a McCain bumper sticker on her car, the woman told Pittsburgh police.

Police planned to administer a polygraph test to Ashley Todd, 20, because her statements about the attack conflict with evidence from the Citizens Bank ATM where she claims the incident occurred, police said.

Todd, of College Station, Texas, told police she was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in Bloomfield just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her, put a knife to her throat and demanded money.
