Assailant called 911 to blame phantom kidnapper

An Ayden, North Carolina man is in trouble with the law after he head-butted his girlfriend and tried to cover up the crime by blaming a non-existent kidnapper.

Jeronimo Rubio called the 911 center Friday morning claiming an armed gunman came into his house and took the woman and two children and drove away in a white vehicle.

Deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office as well as officers from the Fremont Police department went to the house. Investigation revealed that Rubio had assaulted the woman and she had fled with her children.

Det. Sgt. Rick Farfour contacted the victim and determined that Rubio had called 911. Rubio was charged with Filing a False Report, Resisting a Public Officer, Misuse of 911 system, and Assault Inflicting serious Injury (info from WITN TV, WNCT TV and Goldsboro News-Argus )
