LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man who was stabbed in the arm by a 15-year-old Indiana boy he tried to abduct lied to police that armed robbers caused his injury, according to Louisville Metro police.
Daniel Aaron Terry's arrest warrant says that on December 23, 2013, the 25-year-old man reported to LMPD that he had been approached by two men who were armed with a knife and demanding cash. Terry told police one of the men stabbed him in the upper right arm, that there was a struggle, and that his assailants then fled. Police photographed Terry's stab wound.
According to the warrant, Terry later failed to return repeated calls from an LMPD detective investigating the case.
On March 13, 2014, the LMPD detective was contacted by the department's sex crimes unit about the attempted abduction of a 15-year-old boy, a case it was working in conjunction with the New Castle, Indiana Police Department.
The warrant states that during the abduction attempt, which happened on December 23, 2013, the teen stabbed his would-be abductor in the upper arm while escaping from him. DNA on the knife was linked to Terry, who police said apparently drove home to Louisville after he was stabbed and then filed a report with LMPD.
Police said Terry and the teenage boy met on a social site for members of the gay community.
Terry admitted to New Castle Police in a recorded interview that he made up the robbery story, according to his arrest warrant.
Terry is charged in Louisville with falsely reporting an incident, a misdemeanor. Police said more serious charges were pending in New Castle, IN.
