A 27-year-old man initially told people he had fallen off a bicycle and sustained some injuries, police said.
But his story soon changed when he arrived at a local hospital, said Sgt. John Hoofer, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.
He had a stab wound in his left rib cage and a cut on his upper arm.
He then told police he was assaulted by three strangers, Hoofer said.
