Police: Cortland Man Injured Himself

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

An 18-year-old Cortland man has been accused of concocting a story that he’d been struck in the head and robbed.

Authorities say Christopher Thompson of Sherman Road was charged with falsely reporting an incident.

According to the Cortland County Sheriff’s Department, Thompson is alleged to have called 911 claiming to have been robbed at Testa Park in the town of Cortlandville.

Investigators say Thompson had a “visible lump on his forehead.” He was taken by ambulance to Cortland Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Police say they determined Thompson had injured himself and fabricated the account of a robbery.

Thompson was ordered to appear in Cortlandville town court on July 8.
