Suspect wanted for possible breaking and entering, fight with woman


BRUNSWICK CO., NC (WWAY) -- Investigators are searching for a suspect in connection with a breaking and entering and an altercation with a woman.

Sheriff's deputies say around 6:30 Wednesday morning, a woman walked from her house to get her iPod from her vehicle in the Forest Hills neighborhood in Supply. That's when officers say an unidentified man wearing all black approached her. The two got in a physical fight. The woman told police she punched the suspect several times, until he ran from the scene.

Investigators say the suspect may have been trying to break into the woman's car. They are asking for anyone with information to call the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office at 910-253-2777.

The suspect is possibly Hispanic, described as 5'8" and weighing about 165 pounds. He was last seen wearing a toboggan-style hat. He may have suffered minor bruises from the altercation.
