11-year-old lied about attack


An 11-year-old student has recanted a story that he was attacked by a man with a knife on the way to school Wednesday morning, police said.

The boy said a man in his 60s threw him to the ground and threatened him with a knife around 8 a.m. as he walked to the Grange Middle School.

Police searched the area at the intersection of East Tabor Avenue and Falcon Drive but did not find the suspect, who was wearing a brown jacket with a fur collar according to the boy.

When police interviewed the boy again today he admitted making up the story, police said.
