Crime in Wilmington

Parents warn your students. I just left my son for his 2nd yr at UNCW on Sunday 8-16 and within 12 hrs. He had been assaulted. He and his friends were stopped at a stop sign when a group of boys threw a bottle at their car. The driver and the front seat passenger stepped out to ask the boys why they did this. The passenger was attacked and choked – my son and the driver pulled the choker off of him and in a split second my son was severely beaten – 18 stitches to his face, black eye, knocked out and suffered a concussion. He was transported to the hospital by ambulance. I have been given the run around by the police since Monday; I have been given several different stories. Today I was told for the first time that 1 citation was issued for simple assault but the police report can’t be found on line?? I’m driving down this week and intend on doing my own investigation since none of my son’s friends who were witnesses were questioned. I am astounded to read about the FBI warning of a 1 in 9 chance of being a victim of a crime and Wilmington rated as the highest in crime.
