Man who claimed he was stabbed after being mistaken for a neo-Nazi was lying

On Monday, the Sheridan Police Department told BuzzFeed News in a statement that Witt admitted to making the story up after police confronted him with evidence that the attack never took place.

Witt, who posted his claims on Facebook, claimed that a man asked him if he was a neo-Nazi while reaching over his open car door to stab him.

“I was just getting out of my car to go get myself a milkshake and the next thing I hear is ‘You one of them neo-Nazis” as this man is swinging a knife at my head over my car door,” Witt told BuzzFeed News at the time. “I threw my hands up out of natural reflex and then I kind of dived back in my car as the suspect took off running.”
