has two collisions
A woman's former boyfriend collided with her car Thursday, then later broke into her car, assaulted her, causing her to drive into a parked car, and stole her jewelry, Goldsboro police reports said.
Nikita Quachell Seaberry, 18, of Brenn Loop Drive reported that she saw the man in his car on Wayne Avenue. The man then turned around, followed her for about 30 minutes, then sped in front of her and tried to block her path on Bunche Drive, police said.
The cars collided at about 4:30 p.m., each sustaining about $200 in damages. When police investigated the crash, the man had fled. The other driver was identified in the police report as Demarkco Briggs, 19, of Olivia Lane.
Ms. Seaberry then used her cell phone to call her mother and was told to come to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where the mother worked. About a half-hour later, Briggs smashed a back window in Ms. Seaberry's car, unlocked the door, got inside and assaulted the young woman.
Ms. Seaberry told police that her foot was still on the gas, she could not see where she was going and her car collided with a parked car in the hospital parking lot. The woman's car sustained about $400 in damages. The other car, registered to Robert B. Dunmire III of Mill Road, also had about $400 in damages.
Both Ms. Seaberry and Briggs then got out of her car, and the man snatched her jewelry, continued the assault and fled. The bracelet and other jewelry was valued at $580.
Charges are pending against Briggs, said to be the father of Ms. Seaberry's unborn child. No charges were filed against Ms. Seaberry in the collisions.
Officer Jeff Clifford was promoted today to police evidence technician, Goldsboro Police Chief Tim Bell announced.
Clifford, who was hired Jan. 28, 1998, as a patrol officer, replaced Linda M. Keesler, who had resigned. Clifford's hiring filled the lone vacancy in the three-person identifications section.
A Dudley resident, seeing a teen-ager trying to remove the compact disc player from his car before dawn today, took matters into his own hands, according to a Wayne County Sheriff's Office report.
Bobby James Williams Jr. of Nancy Drive told deputies that he had fired two rifle shots in the air and the suspect fled in a small red car.
Nine minutes later, Deputy J.L. Hill found the car and returned the suspect to the scene to be identified. Hill then arrested Tiszon Olajuwon Evans, 18, of U.S. 13 South and charged him with felony breaking and entering of a vehicle.
Evans was placed in the Wayne County Jail in lieu of a $10,000 secured bond.
A woman was robbed Thursday night when she stopped to buy items from a street vendor in the 600 block of Poplar Street, a Goldsboro police report said.
Tawanda Seaberry, 27, of Dudley told police that she had stopped at about 9:45 p.m. to buy wash cloths. Then a black man approached her and demanded her money.
When Ms. Seaberry said she had no money, the suspect reached in her car, grabbed her wallet and ran away, police said. The robber was described as 6-feet-1 and 130 pounds with a slim build, and he wore a white shirt and blue jeans.
