A woman who reported being stabbed in Camdenton Thursday may instead have had a seizure and fell, causing injury.

According to a press release from the Camdenton Police Department, the CPS responded to the area of Third and Munro streets at 2:53 p.m. May 18 regarding a woman who claimed to have been stabbed by a man in the woods. The woman was found to have a puncture wound to her left side near her hip and was taken to Lake Regional Hospital for treatment.

Due to the nature of the call, numerous officers responded to the area. With assistance from the Camden County Sheriff’s Department, a perimeter was quickly established and a canine team responded to the area to conduct a search for the suspect. No suspect was found or seen in the vicinity. 

A check of the area of the incident did not reveal anything to support the woman’s claim, the press release stated.
