Man robbed, stabbed on Dawson St. early Sunday


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A 25-year-old man was robbed and stabbed as he walked down a Wilmington street early Sunday morning.

Wilmington Police say the man was walking in the 1400 block of Dawson Street near Sam's Superette just after midnight when someone came up behind him and demanded money.

Police say the victim called a relative to take him to the hospital. He also realized some money was missing from his pocket.

The victim told police his attacker was a black man about 30 to 40 years old with a dark complextion, 5'5"-5'8", 150-160 lbs.

WPD says the investigation continues. No word on the victim's condition.

It's time to regulate

It's time to regulate knives. LINC needs to put an end to knife violence while they are out there wasting time by buying the guns from the criminals no questions asked.

Well?!?! They SAID there

Well?!?! They SAID there was a "cease fire" in the hood!!!!

Since "It's not about race",

Since "It's not about race", where are Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrahkan, and the 'Million Hoodie Marchers', on this one ?

Hate Crime

Hey, maybe this was a "Hate Crime" ? Oh wait, that only applies, when the suspect's white, and the victim's black. 99.99% of the time, when its like this, it goes unmentioned.


What a surprise the attacker was black. I guess he could have been Obama 10-15 years ago

In the dictionary the word

In the dictionary the word hypocrite has a picture of you, don’t you see the trial is over and the people didn’t riot and burn neighborhoods? That is not good enough for you, Sharpton and you have a lot more in common than you would like to admit I’d bet.

But there was rioting...

...looting, police car burnings and people beaten. Do you not read the news?

In that same dictionary you reference, look up the word "blind", you'll find your picture next to it. And I'm being nice!

Ya thank?

I surely do! Great point!

Wow, really?

Maybe we need to have a march or protest against black on black crime - Oh wait, theres no money in that for Sharpton or Jackson.



We need to ban knives.
