2 women robbed
Two women were robbed Saturday in a driveway in the 100 block of Orbit Road by three people, according to a Wayne County Sheriff's Office report.
The resident, Tammy L. Thomas, told deputies that the suspects grabbed her and Jaleesa Chanel Jackson around their necks at about 4:20 p.m. and stole Ms. Thomas' picture phone, a gold necklace, a charm and her keys.
The necklace, valued at $1,100, was recovered in the yard. The other property was valued at $350.
One male suspect was described as black, 5-feet-5 and 200 pounds with a stocky build and short black hair. He wore a black shirt and black jeans. The second suspect was described as a black woman, 6-feet-2 and 155 pounds with black hair in corn rows, and she wore a blue jacket and blue bandanna. The third suspect could not be described. They fled in a burgundy car.
A 59-year-old Goldsboro man was assaulted Friday by another man in the 900 block of Hugh Street in a dispute over car payments, Goldsboro police reported.
Simon Kennon of Hugh Street was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released, a spokeswoman said.
Kennon told officers that he had sold a car to the other man and the suspect had made one payment and then refused to pay more. Kennon had the car towed, the report said. The two men argued and Kennon asked for the key. Then the suspect punched Kennon in the face and fled, the report said.
The suspect was described as black, about 30 years old, 6-feet-1 and 180 pounds with short black hair in corn rows and brown eyes. He wore a brown shirt and blue jeans.
