LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A Louisville man has been arrested after allegedly falsely reporting an incident.

According to LMPD, Daniel Terry, 25, filed a police report in December of 2013 knowing the information he had given was false.

Terry reported he had been approached by two black males who were armed with a knife and demanded cash from him. He told police that he was stabbed once in the arm, then there was s struggle and the men fled.

When officers checked Terry, he did have a stab wound to his upper right arm.

Officials reportedly attempted to call Terry so they could further investigate the case, but he would not return officers’ calls.

In March of 2014, LMPD Sex Crimes Unit, in conjunction with New Castle, Indiana Police Department, was investigating an attempted abduction of a 15-year-old male.

During the abduction attempt, which occurred on the same day as Terry’s report, the 15-year-old stabbed his assailant in the upper arm.

DNA on the knife matched Terry’s.

Police believe the 15-year-old got away and then Terry drove himself back home to Louisville and filed the report with LMPD.

Terry is facing charges of falsely reporting an incident in Kentucky.

More charges may be coming for him in the state of Indiana.
