Man's claim of parking deck assault isn't adding up
Montgomery County detectives looking into a 29-year-old's stunning claim Thursday -- that he'd been walking across a Wheaton parking lot, was accosted by two men, was dragged to the fifth level of a parking deck, was robbed, and was shoved off into a 40 to 50 feet free-fall -- have determined the claim isn't true.
"His initial complaint does not match up with additional evidence," Capt. Paul Starks, a police spokesman, said Friday.
The man said he was attacked early Thursday afternoon. Based on additional investigation into Friday, including discussions with the man's family and friends, "There's no indication that anyone else was involved," Starks said.
The man did suffer significant injuries to his back and an ankle, and was found at the base of the parking deck.
"He's injured. We're still investigating how," Starks said.
