Not sure who told this story - but it's not scipture at all.
The Bible tells us that the Devil was a "Cherub" an angle in the throne room of God. He was considered perfect until iniquity was found in him when he said "I will exalt my throne above God's". It was at that point that he (satan) was cast out of heaven along with those angels who followed him.
The creation of man happened after this.
