CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

The Charlottesville Police Department is saying a reported stabbing along Fifth Street is “unfounded”, and it is no longer looking for a suspect.

Officers were called out for the report of a stabbing in the area near the Sleep Inn a little before 1 a.m. Thursday, April 5. A woman claimed someone stabbed her and ran off.

Officers from Albemarle County and Charlottesville set up a perimeter to search the area for a suspect. Authorities later said they had reason to believe time had passed between when the alleged incident occurred and when the caller reported it.

According to investigators, the victim had non-life threatening injuries and was not taken to the hospital.
