This did not occur

From an online Winston-Salem Police Department Public Record Release, dated 9/23:

Officers with the Winston-Salem Police Department responded to a reported stabbing at Cavalry Medical Transport located at 1095 Fairchild Drive. Officers located an employee at the business who had her hands and feet bound with tape and she had several non life threatening lacerations. An undetermined amount of money was stolen. The victim was transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.

The case was referred to the Criminal Investigation Division.

From the same Public Record Release, dated 9/24:

Detectives have conducted follow up investigation into this case and determined that this incident did not occur. No charges will be filed and there will be no further investigation into this matter.

I find that wording absurd. Clearly, something happened, an attempt at fraud, a false report to police, something, but the tone of the update is like an angry parent insisting something never happened when the child knows full well it did. "And I will brook no more discussion of this matter, dammit."
