Teen arrested after claiming to be home invasion victim

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - A 13-year-old boy who called police about a home invasion robbery Thursday ended up being the one in trouble with the law.

Ocean Springs Police were called to a home on Heritage Lane Thursday morning just after 11am. When they got there, the teenager who lived there told the officers that two men had entered the house and assaulted him and a dog at the home.

Officers said they could see that the boy was injured and the dog was bleeding from head trauma. The teen was treated and released from Ocean Springs Hospital, while the animal was taken to a veterinarian for observation.

Investigators started thinking that the crime scene appeared staged. Upon further investigation, they found that the boy's wounds were self inflicted.

The teen is now charged with cruelty to animals and making a false police report, as well as harassing communications not related to this incident. He's being held at the Jackson County Youth Detention Facility.
