Man wanted for assaulting Topsail Beach officer after break-in


TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Topsail Beach Police are looking for help finding a man they say broke into a home and assaulted an officer.

Police say the victim of the break-in has a security system with video surveillance, so they were able to get a pretty clear shot of the man who broke into the home Friday morning. The problem is, police are having a hard time identifying him.

Investigators say the man broke into a home on Trout Ave. When an officer responded to the robbery, the man ran from the house and then got into a physical altercation with the officer.

Police have pending warrants for this man for breaking and entering, larceny and assault on an officer.

If you have any idea who this man is or where he is, please contact the topsail beach police at (910) 443-072
