Monday, November 18th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are searching for two masked men they say used handguns to force their way into an apartment last night.

It happened in the 500 block of Cobblestone Drive in Abbotts Run Apartments around 9:30 p.m.

That’s when police say two black men in hoodies, with bandannas covering their faces, broke into a unit there and stole electronics, sneakers and $100.

Police say the two men, one wearing a blue bandanna and the other wearing a black one, got away with an Xbox and a laptop.

They say no one was hurt during the crime, but Wilmington Police are investigating.

2 men charged in NC fair injuries due in court

Monday, November 18th, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Two men arrested following a mishap with a thrill ride at the North Carolina State Fair are set to appear in court on assault charges.

Timothy Dwayne Tutterrow and Joshua Gene Macaroni, both of Quitman, Ga., are scheduled to appear Monday morning before a Wake County judge. They are each charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of felony assault on a juvenile with a deadly weapon.

Tutterrow was operating the Vortex ride last month when it suddenly spun into motion as people were trying to get out, flinging patrons through the air and seriously injuring three people. Macaroni owns the ride, but was not present during the mishap.

Wake County Sheriff’s investigators say the ride was tampered with to bypass critical safety equipment.
