Woman Good Samaritan tried to help now charged in crime

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The woman a Good Samaritan attempted to help before he was allegedly hit by her partner, is now charged in the crime.

Wilmington Police say Alessia Davis, 26, is now charged with obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact. Both are felonies.

Police say earlier this month, Alan Pearson was in the Safeway on Wilshire Boulevard when he saw a woman being hit.

Family members say Pearson offered to get the woman, now identified as Davis, some help, when Hakeem Sanders sucker punched Pearson.

Police say Davis lied to police and claimed she didn’t know Sanders, but in reality, they had a relationship.

Davis was placed under a $26,000 bond.

Pearson was taken to the hospital, where he later died after his family removed him from life support.

Sanders is charged with second degree murder, among other charges.
