A house fire April 16 at 315 Brogden St. off Old Mount Olive Highway was determined by the Wayne County Sheriff's Office investigators to have been started by an electrical malfunction.

Armed robbery

Keon Crisp of Fairview Circle was reportedly robbed at gunpoint after two black males approached him and asked for change on Wednesday. Crisp told the men he had no change to give, causing one of the males to reportedly take out a black handgun and strike him in the mouth, authorities said. The suspects stole about $150 from Crisp, then ran on foot headed east on Holly Street. Police said Crisp may have suffered a broken jaw and missing teeth as a result of the attack. The suspect with the handgun was described as about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, about 160 pounds with a thin build and black short hair. He was wearing a black sweater with a white shirt, blue jeans and black shoes, according to the report.
