Man accused of stabbing himself to frame ex-friend

Send a link to a friend

[December 06, 2008]  SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) -- A young man who told San Clemente police he was jumped and stabbed apparently made up the story in an effort to get an ex-friend in trouble. Lt. Ted Boyne said a 19-year man was arrested Thursday afternoon and booked for investigation of filing a false police report.

InsurancePolice got an anonymous stabbing call early Thursday and investigators followed a trail of blood to the man, who was bleeding from his hands and arms. The man told investigators he was stabbed by a former friend.

The lieutenant said it was later determined the man used a shard of glass to inflict the wounds on himself.

The nature of the disagreement with his friend wasn't disclosed.
