Police say Iowa man lied about who stabbed him

URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) — Police say a 19-year-old Urbandale man lied about being stabbed by a man in his 40s at South Karen Acres Park.

Police say Stuart Turner told detectives on Monday afternoon that he had stabbed himself.

A police news release says charges are pending against Turner.

A man who answered a phone listed for a Stuart Turner in Urbandale said Tuesday morning that he is not the Stuart Turner cited by police.

It’s unclear whether Turner has an attorney. Online court records don’t yet list the case.
