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

She has been booked on a charge of terrorizing and criminal mischief.  Bond has not been set.

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.
