WPD investigating armed robbery

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are looking for a man they say robbed another man at gunpoint in the 3100 block of Market Street.

Lieutenant Blanton said just after 5pm Saturday evening, a taxi cab driver, who was not on duty, was driving around a friend when he pulled over to throw trash away near Dr. Stylz.

That’s when investigators say the suspect got into the back seat of the taxi and pistol whipped the passenger.

The suspect, who police say is a white male, about 25-years-old with a shaved head ran towards Montgomery Avenue with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Investigators say he is wearing a grey sweatshirt and black pants.

They do not know if he is still armed.

Fort Fisher commerates 149th anniversary

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

FORT FISHER, NC (WWAY) — Fort Fisher commemorated the 149th anniversary of its pivotal civil war battle Saturday.

Period clothing and uniforms were all the rage as visitors experienced living history.

This year’s program featured Civil War medical services.

Organizers say events like these are important for educating the public and remembering what’s important.

“Lives were lost here and we can’t lose sight of that, we never want to do that. We never celebrate war, we’re simply commemorating it,” said Fort Fisher spokesman Si Lawrence. “It was a huge battle here and most importantly Fort Fisher was a key part of the civil war battle for the confederates.”

Fort Fisher is North Carolina’s most visited historical site, and events like this draw thousands annually.

Lawrence said they’re expecting next year to bring in the largest crowd yet, in honor of the 150th anniversary.

Preparations for the sesquicentennial are already underway.
