Anger management class might be a good recommendation for a judge to make in relation to a man’s recent assault of his wife. The 24-year old man was arrested after his wife showed up at Wilkes Regional Medical Center Saturday with a broken elbow — in the words of a sheriff’s deputy, broken completely in two. The woman tells deputies her husband had been out with friends, then came home and dragged her back out, supposedly to a poker game. But she ended up sitting in the corner while he and his buddies talked about drugs. A few hours later, they went home, where he decided he was “in the mood.” She turned him down.
At that point, she says he became irate, throwing things at her and causing a mess on the floor where she tripped and fell. It was then that he kicked her repeatedly, the woman says, breaking her elbow. He then did a number of degrading things to her hair, and for four hours would throw her out of the house, then minutes later drag her back in for more abuse. She finally broke free or he passed out, the report isn’t clear which. He was served with a warrant charging assault inflicting serious bodily injury, without further incident.
Back from vacation half an hour, and already the car’s been broken into and a bunch of stuff stolen. A rural North Wilkesboro man and his wife got that sort of rude welcome home this weekend. The couple got back about 8:30 last night, and went inside to relax and settle down a few minutes before unpacking the car. She went back outside about 9, to get some photos from the car.
She stopped short when she saw the driver’s side rear door had been keyed. They went through the car, and found a thief had stolen two leather coats and a jacket, the car keys, a purse, a cell phone case, and a class ring. But it was what was in the pocket of one of those coats that was the most significant loss — 9-thousand dollars in cash. Between the damage to the car and the total of the stolen items, the loss is estimated at about 10-thousand-500 dollars. No suspects are listed.
