BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A 19-year-old Boise man is charged with filing a false police report after Ada County deputies say he reported being assaulted in an effort to gain the sympathy of his former girlfriend.

Shawn Sheltra Jr. was arrested Tuesday after police investigated his report that he was attacked by two men and strangled with an electrical cord. Deputies received a call at about 5 p.m. Tuesday with a report that a man was found lying on the ground with a cord around his neck.

Officers said Sheltra told them he was knocked unconscious and woke up on the side of the road. After hospital medical staff could find no injuries consistent with the attack, Shelton confessed to fabricating the story in an attempt to win back his former girlfriend.
