A woman who told authorities she had been stabbed by an unknown intruder faces a charge of filing a false police report.

State police in Indiana said Jasmine P. Mock, 20, of 1640 Saltsburg Ave., Conemaugh Township, was initially treated at Indiana Regional Medical Center and then flown by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital for treatment because of the May 21 incident.

Mock told police she was stabbed in the stomach by an unknown male who fled her home after the attack, according to reports.

But during a follow-up interview on June 13, Mock told state Trooper Timothy Lipniskis that she stabbed herself.

A preliminary hearing for Mock will be scheduled before Homer City District Judge Steffee.
