A man who claimed he was attacked and stabbed in Edgewater Monday night has admitted he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work.
Aaron Siebers, 29, reported the stabbing at about 6:30 p.m. when he walked to his job at Blockbuster Video, 1921 Sheridan Blvd.
Siebers was rushed to St. Anthony Hospital where he received stitches to close his wound.
Meanwhile, officers from Edgewater, Mountain View, Lakewood, Lakeside and Jefferson County began a search for the suspects, who had been described as three skinheads or Hispanic males dressed in black. He told police they tried to rob him and then stabbed him with a knife.
Investigators reviewed surveillance video taken at a nearby business. It failed to show an attack where Siebers claimed it had happened.
Siebers was re-interviewed by detectives who said he finally admitted he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work.
