Two 17-year-old Nampa residents said they were stabbed outside a convenience store Sunday, but police say they were unable to find any evidence the crime took place there.
One of the boys’ parents called police Sunday evening to report the stabbings. One boy was stabbed in the torso and the other was stabbed in the leg, said Lt. Joe Ramirez of the Nampa Police Department. Both boys were taken to a Nampa hospital for treatment.
The boys told officers the incident took place about 9 p.m. during a fight outside a convenience store in the 100 block of Caldwell Boulevard.
A clerk at the store did not witness a fight and didn’t recall either of the teens coming to the store, Ramirez said. Nor did officers find any blood or signs of a fight in the snow on the ground outside the store.
“We’re not sure exactly what happened,” Ramirez said. “The only part of the story that pans out is that they were definitely stabbed.”
Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call Nampa police at 465-2257.
