Stabbing report proves false

Police say that a suspect named in a stabbing proved to have an "irrefutable alibi" — and they've now charged the victim with making a false report.

It's the third time the victim has reported a similar incident, and police say that in their previous two investigations, they failed to turn up any suspects at all.

When officers were called Monday night, the 29-year-old man said that he had been stabbed in the neck, although his injuries turned out to be minor in nature, and he was quickly treated and released from hospital.

Police then tracked down the person that the victim claimed to have stabbed him, but their investigation proved that the suspect couldn't have done it.

In the previous incidents, which had involved the police canine unit trying to track down alleged stabbing suspects, police hadn't been able to find anyone, and they say that the so-called "victim" now admits that he made up all three of the reports and had caused his own injuries.

The 29-year-old man was arrested, but has been released from custody, and is to appear in court in June to face three charges of public mischief.
