A 14-year-old boy from Brighton, who was taken to hospital with a stab wound to his stomach, has admitted making up a story about being attacked.
The lad suffered the wound while messing around with a knife in a play fight with a friend in Kemp Town. He accidentally stabbed himself.
Detective Sergeant Chris Lane said: “We were appealing for witnesses to the attack and the incident caused some concern in the community at the time. The boy will now be dealt with for wasting police time.”Everyone knows you lie about rape, not stabbing. Then the police are likely to treat you as a victim.
