Stabbing “victim” charged with filing false report
The subject who claimed he was stabbed this morning on Rann Court in the Central Park Townhomes has now been arrested and charged with filing a false police report.
Dante Rojas, 23, of Fredericksburg, called 911 at 9 a.m. this morning claiming that he was assaulted and stabbed by a black male with long dreadlocks and wearing a red sweatshirt. While Rojas was being treated for the stab wound to his arm, officers and a Stafford County K9 unit searched the area for the described suspect.
The subsequent investigation revealed that Rojas stabbed himself in an apparent attempt to avoid being taken back to jail on an outstanding warrant for domestic assault and battery as well as a probation violation.
Rojas was additionally charged today with filing a false police report and after his release from the MWH emergency department, he was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail.
