Police: Masked trio threatens, robs 14-year-old boy in Wilmington

Monday, October 28th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say three masked men had a gun when the trio robbed a 14-year-old boy in Wilmington Saturday afternoon.

They say it happened around 2:45 p.m. in the 1100 block of Anne Street. Police say the boy told officers he was approached by three men in black hoodies with black bandannas covering their faces.

That’s when they say one of the men lifted up his shirt, showing the boy he had a gun. The trio then took off with the boy’s iPhone.

Police say the boy couldn’t call in the crime until almost a half-hour later, since he had no phone.

Worker dismantling other version of Vortex ride hurt at NC State Fair

Monday, October 28th, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A worker dismantling a ride at the North Carolina State Fair has been hurt.

Agriculture Department spokesman Brian Long says the man was injured when a piece of a ride called The Vortex fell on him around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

The ride is not the same version of The Vortex where five people were hurt last week.

The fair ended Sunday night.

Officials say the 35-year-old man suffered a leg injury. His name has not been released and there was no word on his condition. He was taken to WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh.

Long said the Wake County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.

A ride operator on the other version of The Vortex is scheduled to be in court Monday to face criminal charges after last week’s injuries.
