PROVO -- Police aren't buying the story of a 17-year-old boy who said he was stabbed by a homeless man in the laundry room of a Provo apartment complex.
Provo police say they arrested the teen boy and his 19-year-old girlfriend on Wednesday on charges of obstruction of justice after investigating the stabbing that was reported by hospital officials about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The teen had told authorities he walked into the laundry room and pulled out money to buy a drink when a man approached him and demanded money.
The victim says he refused, and the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed him in the stomach.
A police spokesman tells the Daily Herald that officials are interviewing a possible suspect but don't know why the boy didn't accurately report the stabbing.
