The apartment owner discovered her unconscious but otherwise unhurt, a newspaper said, adding that the landlord called the police and the ambulance, fearing the woman had been the victim of a vicious home robbery.

However, detectives grew suspicious of the young tenant's story when they failed to find any evidence of forced entry to the flat.

During questioning, the woman broke down and admitted that there was nobody else involved. "I did not want to go to work, so I did it as an excuse for absence without due notice," she told officers.

Police, who declined to confirm the report, issued a reprimand but decided the woman should not face charges.
