Colorado Man Who Told Police He was Stabbed Because of ‘Neo-Nazi’ Haircut Lied About the Whole Thing

Joshua Witt, 26, claimed to have been stabbed by a stranger due to his “neo-Nazi haircut,” but he apparently made it all up.

The Sheridan Police Department in Colorado said Monday that Joshua Witt falsely claimed to have been stabbed by a stronger shortly after pulling into a Steak ‘n Shake parking lot.

In reality, Witt actually accidentally stabbed himself with a knife he bought at a nearby sporting goods store, KUSA-TV reported.

Originally, Witt claimed that when he got out of his car, a black man in his mid-20s approached him and asked, “Are you one of them neo-Nazi?” before attempting to stab him.

Trying to defend himself, Witt said he blocked the man with his hand, resulting in three stitches.

Witt posted the entirely fabricated ordeal on his Facebook page, garnering attention from several local and national media outlets and programs, including “Inside Edition.” Witt has since deleted his Facebook account.

Investigators reviewed Steak ’n Shake footage from the time Witt claimed he was attacked and saw no evidence of any assault. The police did, however, find footage of Witt buying a knife from a sporting goods store moments before the made-up attack.

Here’s what Sheridan Police Chief Mark Campbell told Gizmodo:

On August 24, 2017, Sheridan Police re-interviewed Mr. Witt, [and] he was confronted with all the information listed above.

Mr. Witt subsequently admitted to accidentally cutting himself with the knife while parked in his car in front of the sporting goods store and admitted making up the story about being attacked.

Witt was booked and released for filing a false police report and now faces $2,650 fine and up to a year in jail.
