A nurse stabbed herself in the stomach with a knife from Tesco outside a hospital after accusing someone else so that he could get compensation

Irvine, Ayrshire resident Donna Maxwell claimed she had been attacked by a patient, which resulted in a significant police event and the appearance in court of an innocent woman—who has since passed away—before she was exonerated.

During a four-day trial at Ayr Sheriff Court, she persisted in her claims that she had been randomly attacked and stabbed in the abdomen; however, a jury has now found her guilty.

As her claims came apart, CCTV footage of her purchasing a knife similar to the one that had injured her body at a Tesco store was played in court.

The court was informed that on November 22, at approximately 10 a.m., Maxwell was discovered outside Ailsa Hospital in Ayr, having yelled for assistance. The defendant also pointed at a woman as though accusing her of the attack.

According to reports, Maxwell told her coworkers that she had been ambushed and stabbed in the hospital’s mental health unit. Police searched the area for clues and began an investigation.

A public information request was issued regarding the alleged suspect, who was described as being between 30 and 50 years old, approximately 5 feet and 2–3 inches tall, with a slight build and pale complexion. Police also said that the woman “was wearing a dark woolly hat and dark jacket.”

However, Maxwell was detained a few weeks later on suspicion of fabricating the incident. “Would it not make sense to look at her hands if you thought you were about to be hit?” inquired Procurator Fiscal Depute Alasdair Millar.

She said, “It happened so fast. I didn’t see the knife if that’s what you’re alluding to. She was ranting and raving, then kind of turned, quick as that, and walked away.” Then Mr. Millar said, “I put it to you that on November 22, you stabbed yourself,” and Maxwell replied, “Completely incorrect. I can’t be further from the truth.”

Maxwell’s phone displayed searches for “woman’s anatomy” and “woman’s anatomy diagram,” both of which had been removed, according to James McGoldrick, a detective sergeant in the police’s cybercrime unit, who testified in court.

According to the Ayr Advertiser, searches for “claim compensation” and “claim compensation if victim of crime” were also made on the website of the UK Government.

Maxwell was found guilty of making up statements and wasting police time. Sheriff Shirley Foran called for background reports ahead of another hearing in February.
