Busted: Best of the blotters

Sweet dreams

A robbery victim in Greensboro told police he was attacked early on the evening of June 20 after two men offering to sell him a mattress instead led him to an alley and mugged him. The incident happened on East Fisher Avenue. The victim described two suspects – one of them is a black male in his forties, about 6 feet tall, wearing a black baseball cap and a Hawaiian shirt. The other was described as a black male in his thirties, about 5-foot 6-inches, with long hair and a stocky build. After the robbery, the men headed south on Murrow Boulevard.

Number seven

Winston-Salem detectives identified a body discovered in the yard behind 1331 N. Jackson St. last week. They concluded that the death was a homicide, pushing the number of murders for the year up to seven. Felix Francisco Juan Felix, 15, died from a gunshot wound and was discovered on June 20. Because of the ongoing investigation, the police have not announced the location of the fatal wound or the type of weapon used in the murder.
