report of attack
WASHINGTON TERRACE -- A woman who said she was stabbed and robbed Thursday in Washington Terrace fabricated the incident, according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office.
The 35-year-old woman reported she was attacked about 1:45 p.m. as she left a doctor's office in the vicinity of 5350 S. Adams Parkway.
She reported the man grabbed her by the neck, stabbed her in the abdomen and took some jewelry, but the incident never happened, Sheriff's Lt. Mark Lowther said Friday in a news release.
The woman, whose identity was not released, admitted to detectives she made up the incident, said Lowther. He did not comment on a motive for the fabrication.
The sheriff's office will not file criminal charges against the woman, Lowther said.
OGDEN -- About 25 supporters of Matthew David Stewart gathered in a candlelight vigil Friday night on the one-year anniversary of the shootout at his home.
Erna Stewart, who is Stewart's sister-in-law, said the vigil gave supporters a chance to show solidarity.
"It is (an opportunity) to be together (for) reflection and healing," she said.
Five members of the Weber Morgan Narcotics Strike Force were wounded and Ogden Police Officer Jared Francom, also a strike force agent, was killed in a shootout while serving a search warrant at Stewart's residence on Jan. 4, 2012. Stewart, who is awaiting trial on capital murder charges, was also wounded.
His supporters call the event a police home invasion.
The vigil was held in front of Stewart's home at 3268 Jackson Ave.
