Jeffrey jumped in front of his date, told her to run, then stayed back to fight the guy off. He took two small slashes to the chest, but managed to make the guy run away.
The police and K9 units combed the area for hours, but couldn't find the knife-wielding maniac. Then they noticed Jeffrey saying things that didn't add up . . . and his date told them Jeffrey was texting right before the attack. So they figured it out . . .
Jeffrey had STAGED the entire thing to impress his date. The guy with the knife was really just his friend.
The police told Jeffrey if he admitted it they wouldn't file charges. He admitted it, they kept their word, and the case is closed.
Jeffrey's date was NOT impressed, by the way. She told a reporter that what he did was, quote, "not very heroic."
