No sign of the perpetrator was found at the scene.
Officers in Klamath County, Oregon recently responded to what turned out to be a rather strange 911 call.
The peculiar incident began late on Wednesday evening when Klamath County 911 dispatch received an emergency call from a man who claimed that someone was trying to kill him with an axe.
According to Klamath County Deputy District Attorney Cole Chase, the individual in question provided very little information about what was happening and was “threatening, rude and abusive”.
Officers raced to the scene, however when they got there they found no sign of an attacker. When queried about what had happened, the man claimed that it was Bigfoot who had attacked him.
“The defendant Mr. Drennen was combative, made some threats, but ultimately was taken into custody without any physical incident,” said Chase.
“Upon a subsequent investigation, there were no signs that Sasquatch was present.”
The man ended up being charged with initiating a false report and misusing the emergency number.
