Henrico Police launched a ground and air search for a stabbing suspect, but later learned the man who called 911 inflicted the wounds upon himself.
Residents of the Wyndham community in the Far West End were startled to see a police plane circling their neighborhood late Wednesday night, many making calls to the authorities and media.
Henrico Police launched the aerial search, along with officers on the ground, following a call from an adult male who claimed he had been stabbed by an individual wearing all black in the 11700 block of Park Forest Court around 9:45 PM.
Officers later learned that the individual fabricated the story and had, in fact, inflicted the wound upon himself.
The unnamed individual was taken to a nearby hospital and underwent surgery. His condition, as well as intentions, remain unknown.
