BARTLETT, TN (abc24.com) - A Memphis man has turned himself in to police and faces a variety of charges related to a false rape accusation made against a Bartlett business owner the week of October 2, 2011.
Bartlett police say Khaled Eleiwa turned himself in the morning of Monday, October 10, 2011, in a companion case that left 22-year-old Angela Poindexter in jail after admitting to authorities she falsely accused Victor Garada of trying to rape her.
Poindexter told police she made the story up because of a dispute over money with someone in Garada's family.
Eleiwa is now facing charges on extortion, felony harassment, aggravated stalking and attempting to file a false police report connected to the case.
Eleiwa was released from jail on a $35,000 bond late Monday afternoon.
