Police recommend charging woman with falsifying stabbing report

Police on Wednesday released more information regarding a report of an Oct. 18 stabbing at Coho Park Apartments.

A 34-year-old woman residing in the complex off Mendenhall Loop Drive had called 911 to report an unknown assailant had stabbed her in the left leg.

A police investigation determined the wound was self-inflicted, though it’s not certain whether it was intentional or accidental, Juneau Police Department Chief Greg Browning said by phone on Wednesday.

JPD has forwarded the case to the City Attorney’s office with a recommended charge of filing a false report to law enforcement authorities.
