Security guard arrested in stabbing at LSU

BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) - A security guard who claimed she was attacked while working at LSU but later admitted stabbing herself has been arrested.

LSU Police said 47-year-old Dale Marie Noel of Baton Rouge was arrested Wednesday in Gonzalez and extradited to East Baton Rouge Parish, where she was booked on a charge of terrorizing and criminal mischief. Bond has not been set.

A federal grand jury indicted Noel earlier this month on one count of making a false statement to a federal investigator.

Noel told an FBI special agent investigating the stabbing that she had been attacked by a man of Middle Eastern descent who allegedly said, "I hate Americans," and then assaulted her. Two days later, she told law enforcement she had stabbed herself in the shoulder and stomach to get attention and because of an addiction to prescription medication.
