An attorney says an Egyptian man who authorities say was falsely accused of trying to kidnap a young girl at a West Virginia shopping mall has returned home.
Public defender Michelle Protzman told The Herald-Dispatch Mohamed Fathy Hussein Zayan returned to his home in Alexandria, Egypt, on Sunday. The 54-year-old engineer had been in West Virginia for work.
Protzman says Barboursville police drove Zayan to the Charleston airport Saturday as a courtesy.
On Friday, Santana Renee Adams was charged with falsely reporting an emergency incident.
