BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a Baker City man accused of falsely reporting he was robbed at gunpoint.

The Baker City Herald reports (https://bit.ly/29VgWDM) Farhad Radmanish told a 9-1-1 dispatcher on Tuesday that a pair of masked men carrying pistols stole his wallet, cash and cellphone after forcing him to stop his car at an intersection near the Quail Ridge Golf Course.

The police department said it found numerous inconsistencies in the 25-year-old man’s story while investigating the case over the next two days.

After a follow-up interview Thursday, he was booked into the Baker County Jail on a charge of initiating a false report.
