Wendy’s Employees Stab Each Other While at Work

Two Wendy’s employees in North Carolina are alleged to have stabbed one another while they were working at the fast-food restaurant, according to police.

Asheboro Police Department (APD) officers raced to the Wendy’s restaurant at 623 West Dixie Drive after they received reports of a stabbing at about 10:22 a.m. on Monday.

According to Fox affiliate WGHP, police said the two employees had gotten into a fight before they both stabbed one another.

When police arrived, they found a 22-year-old man had been stabbed and he was later taken to hospital for treatment.

The network reported a witness told officers that the suspect ran away from the Wendy’s restaurant.

As a precaution, the APD alerted nearby Asheboro High School and South Asheboro Middle School. Both schools then issued a shelter-in-place order, according to WGHP. The order was later lifted.

A second witness told officers the suspect had fled the scene

His life mattered: After protests and pushback, city settles Smith lawsuit for $2.57 million

More than three years after Marcus Smith, a homeless Black man, died in police custody, the city of Greensboro announced Tuesday that it has settled a wrongful death lawsuit brought by his family for $2.57 million.

Mary Smith sued the city, Guilford County, eight police officers and two paramedics in her son’s controversial death, which has been fuel for those who want to reform Greensboro’s police force.

Video from officer-worn cameras of the September 2018 incident showed an anxious Smith, seemingly in the midst of a mental health episode, on downtown Church Street pleading for help from police before he was restrained, with his hands bound to his feet while lying on his stomach.

The method of extreme restraint — commonly known as “hogtying” — led to his death, a state medical examiner later said.

And it would be the foundation of the lawsuit filed by the Smith family.

Since then, the city has been under immense pressure to settle and spent hundreds of thousands in attorney fees defending various aspects of the case.

Some wondered if a settlement would ever be reached.

But that changed Tuesday.

North Carolina man arrested in fatal road-rage killing of Pennsylvania mom of 6

North Carolina police have arrested a man they say gunned down a mother of six during an alleged road attack late last week, officials said Thursday.

Dejywan R. Floyd, a 29-year-old Lumberton, N.C., man was arrested shortly after 12:30 a.m. Thursday, the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office said. He has been charged with first-degree murder and discharging a weapon into an occupied property in connection with the senseless shooting of Pennsylvania mom Julie Eberly.

Eberly, 47, was on her way to Hilton Head, S.C., with her husband, Ryan, to meet with friends and celebrate their seventh wedding anniversary, relatives previously told Fox News.

The couple was traveling near the area of Interstate 95’s Exit 22 around 11:40 a.m. on March 25 when what started as an exciting day took a turn for the worst. Investigators determined Floyd grew angry after “the victim’s vehicle came close to the suspect vehicle during a merge into a lane,” according to a post on the sheriff’s office Facebook page.

Floyd then pulled his vehicle alongside the Eberlys’ passenger side, rolled his window down and “fired multiple shots into the passenger door,” police said.

He struck Julie Eberly one time and, according to witnesses, “sped off and exited at Exit 22,” officials said.
