Police: Statutory rape suspect made advances toward teen victim

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Leland Police have provided more details on an investigation that led to a 29-year-old woman being charged with the statutory rape of a teenaged boy.

Detectives arrested Hannah Whitlock Friday and charged her with statutory rape/sex offense of a victim over the age of 6.

Investigators say the victim’s grandmother was a neighbor of Whitlock. They say over a period of time Whitlock made numerous sexual advances toward the boy, which eventually led to a sexual relationship. Police say the relationship lasted for a period of three months and ended when Whitlock moved out of the area. An arrest warrant says the boy was 14.

Leland Police say the Department of Social Services received an anonymous tip about Whitlock’s relationship with the boy several months after the relationship ended. This tip eventually led to an investigation by Leland Police detectives.

Whitlock is in the Brunswick County Detention Center on a $200,000 secured bond. Jail records show she is also being held under $15,000 bond for failure to appear on felony charges in Columbus County. There’s no word yet on what those other charges are.

Police: Pizza Hut employees scare off masked, would-be robbers

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police say employees stopped a couple of would-be robbers before they were able to hit a Wilmington Pizza Hut for the second time in less than two months.

Around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning, police say workers at the Oleander Drive location were out back closing the store when two black men in black clothing with black bandannas covering their faces began walking towards the building.

That’s when they say one of the employees yelled for the men, one with a gun, to stop. Police say the employees then ran back inside through the back door and locked it behind them. The two masked men took off running.

Police say witnesses told them they noticed a vehicle driving away from the scene on 41st Street at high speeds. They say the two passengers in the large, silver sedan matched the description of the would-be robbers.
