KNIGHTDALE, N.C. — Police in a small North Carolina town think a pizza store manager who died after being struck in the head was a victim of a robbery attempt.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that 24-year-old Kenny Ring of Raleigh died late Monday after being hit in the head early Saturday morning at the store in Knightdale.

Police think Ring was attacked as he was closing the store. No arrests have been made.

Assistant town manager Seth Lawless says officials think it’s the first murder in the history of the 82-year-old town near Raleigh.

The Wake County Sheriff’s Department and Raleigh police helped Knightdale police process the crime scene.

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — The police chief in one of North Carolina’s largest cities says his department doesn’t regularly tell the public about reported rapes and sexual assaults because it would create “a public panic.”

The Fayetteville Observer reported that Fayetteville Police Chief Tom Bergamine spoke Tuesday about the investigation of seven cases since June in which women have reported being sexually
assaulted. The department disclosed the cases Monday.

Bergamine says detectives need to investigate reports before alerting the public. He says say reports could be false claims or the victims could leave the state and hamper an investigation.

The department makes available nearly all crime reports on its Web site, but it doesn’t include sexual assaults or rapes. It says it will make the reports available if someone requests them.
