You should proceed with extreme caution. Do not make any statement to the police. Even in the pre-charge phase you should retain an attorney to insulate you from police "getting your side" of story which would be used to hang you. I have handled these types of cases as both a police officer and defense attorney, there goal is to find or fabricate inconsistencies or elicite admissions to corrobrate the complainant's version of events. Your false report issue can come later. You need to shut your mouth and consult with counsel.
