Nashua man charged with making false report, assault
NASHUA -; A city man, who told police a woman stabbed him in the leg, is under arrest for making up the story when he actually punched the woman in the face and cut her with a knife, according to investigators.
Eder Chaves, 31, whose address was not released by police, is charged with false report to law enforcement, second degree assault and simple assault, both domestic-related.
Chaves was arrested after police received a 911 hang-up call and went to the residence from where the call was made. Chaves was there and told officers he';d been stabbed in the leg during a domestic dispute with a woman he knows.
Chaves was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and released.
Detectives, however, later determined he had made up the story about being stabbed. Chaves, police said, had punched the woman in the face and used a knife to cut her torso.
Chaves is being held on $10,000 cash only bail, pending arraignment in 9th Circuit Court.
