Police say a transgender teen who said he was beaten and sexually assaulted in a California school bathroom has recanted the story.

Hercules police spokeswoman Detective Connie Van Putten said detectives interviewed the student on Tuesday (local time) and determined nothing had happened to him.

On Monday, the 15-year-old reported he was attacked by three boys in a bathroom at a suburban San Francisco public school.

The teen, who is biologically female but identifies as male, had told officers he was leaving a boy's bathroom Monday morning at Hercules Middle/High School when the assailants pushed him inside a large stall and attacked him.
