SONIC YOUTHS

Two African-American males approached a waitress at Sonic at 915 Summit Avenue in Greensboro and robbed her at knifepoint as she took an order, police reported on March 15. Suspects have since been apprehended, but no word in the report about whether or not they forced the woman to empty her ’50s-style change dispenser. Though only two men were involved, five people were arrested: Leenek Thompson, Devon Hinton, Tre Fitzgerald, Dorian Lee Hunter, and Dennisha Howell.

WHERE MY DOGS AT?

A 16-year-old male was walking his dog on West 6th Street near North Liberty Street in Winston-Salem when a robber attacked him demanding money. Defending himself, the young man told the attacker he had no money before he was assaulted. In the ensuing fistfight, the victim made certain the attacker got his comeuppance. Police in Winston- Salem are searching for a man with “recent facial injuries from being punched.” You have to wonder what the dog was doing while his master was beaten.

BAD NEWS FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE POWER NEWS

West Friendly Avenue between Guilford College Road and the Urban Loop experienced a power outage on March 16 . Duke Power immediately responded to the situation. Wait, I live there. Better check the battery life on my laptop.

HOMELAND SECURITY

On March 16, Francis Thomas was shot in the leg at 827 Circle Drive in Greensboro. Thomas said he was standing outside of a residence on Homeland Drive when he heard gunshots and started running. He didn’t realize he had been shot until a short time later. That’s a tough dude. Thus far, no suspects have been identified.
