The story of a stabbing reported to Conway police Sunday was an apparent fabrication according to Conway Police Department public information officer La Tresha Woodruff.

Woodruff said detectives working the case determined the story was false, and the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute that is now under investigation.

According to the original CPD incident report, the victim, a resident at the 3400 block of Irby Drive, was unable to be interviewed by police because of his injury.

In the report, the victim’s wife is listed as telling police her husband relayed a story to her that a masked man entered their residence through an unlocked door and stabbed him.

Woodruff said the woman told police the man was gone before she and her 14-year-old daughter emerged from their bedrooms.

Woodruff said the man received one stab wound to the chest and was flown via medical transport to St. Vincent Hospital in Little Rock due to the location of the wound.

Woodruff did not know the condition of the man Tuesday.
