IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -

A 33-year-old Iowa City man has been accused of making false police reports about being assaulted.

Online court records say Jeramy Kray is charged with falsely reporting an indictable crime, a misdemeanor.

Police say Kray reported on Nov. 9 that he'd been being scraped by a knife wielded by a man who banged on Kray's front door. Police also say Kray reported being assaulted by the same man on Nov. 10, then by two men in his garage on Nov. 13.

Police say Kray was hospitalized and given pain pills on each occasion.

Investigators say Kray later acknowledged that he'd made up the assaults.
