Authorities in Beverly Hills are waving off claims made by a woman who said she "was sexually assaulted by two men at a luxury hotel in Beverly Hills," according to KTLA. The alleged victim, a guest at the Montage Beverly Hills, says she was attacked early this morning in her room.

However, investigators who inspected the room say no crime took place there, and the Beverly Hills Police Department are calling the woman's claims "baseless."

In fact, the BHPD released a statement that elaborates on what they believe the woman, said to be in her 40s, experienced:

"The alleged victim was entertaining two gentlemen in her room when the situation escalated and she became fearful. Disoriented and embarrassed, the alleged victim responded to the hotel’s lobby where she was contacted by hotel security who ultimately contacted B.H.P.D."

The woman was taken to the hospital for observation.

The hotel has not commented on the claims.
