Iowa City Man Accused of Lying About Being Assaulted Three Times

  • Photo
IOWA CITY, Iowa - A 33-year-old Iowa City man has been arrested on suspicion of calling police to make false reports about being assaulted on three occasions, after all of which he was hospitalized and received pain pills.

After the first false assault report police believe Jeramy James Kray made, the department issued a press release asking for the public's help finding the alleged assailant. In the Nov. 9 release, police said they were called to 736 Sandusky Drive Kray's residence on a report of an armed suspect.

The resident, according to the news release, told police that he went to his garage to smoke a cigarette when he heard someone banging on the front door. He told authorities that he walked out of the garage to see who it was, and a man tried to slash and stab him with a knife, the release said.

The resident told police he had never seen the suspect before but described him as a black man, about 30 years old with a "white T-shirt and possibly jeans." Police reported the man suffered a scrape on his lower torso from the knife.

In a criminal complaint made public Wednesday, police said they believe Kray made his first false report to authorities on Nov. 9, alleging a man had assaulted him and cut his shirt and stomach. Kray is accused of calling police again on Nov. 10 to report being assaulted by the same man.

On Nov. 13, police said Kray called to report being assaulted by two men while in his garage. Police reported that after each alleged assault, Kray went to the hospital for treatment and received pain medication, according to the complaint.

In a follow-up interview, Kray admitted to making up the assaults. He faces three counts of making false reports to authorities, a serious misdemeanor.

Kray was released Wednesday morning from the Johnson County Jail.
