A thief grabbed a cash register with $60 and fled from a store; armed men barged into a home in Dudley and stole property; and another man foiled an armed robbery in separate crimes, according to reports.
A black man entered the K&S Beverage and Grocery store at 317 E. Elm St. at about 1:25 a.m. today and threatened to punch the woman clerk, a Goldsboro police report said.
The suspect swung at the clerk and missed, the report said, but grabbed the register and fled.
The robber was described as 5-feet-6-8 inches tall and about 205 pounds. Witnesses said he wore a white shirt, brown denim pants, a black scarf and a camouflage hat.
Three black men, two armed with firearms, barged into a home in the 800 block of Outlaw Road before dawn today, a Wayne County sheriff's report said.
The occupants said gunshots damaged a wall, a mirror and the roof of the home and a pickup truck. Damages were estimated at $700.
One suspect wore a white T-shirt, red ball cap and blue pants. The burglars fled in a dark truck without stealing anything, the report said.
Earlier, a resident in the 700 block of East Chestnut Street told Goldsboro police a black man knocked on his door at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.
When Percy Black opened his door, the suspect displayed a handgun and told Black "to give it up," the report said. Black turned around and grabbed a shotgun from another room, and when he returned to the door, the suspect was gone.
The suspect was described as 6-feet tall and 140 pounds with a slim build, and he wore a blue shirt.
