Danny Edwards of Wintervile is wanted for assaulting Bobby Wayne Lewis at his home at Tower Place Apartments on July 17th.

The 22-year-old man was last seen around the New Bern area this weekend.

Police say the assault happened during a dispute between the two men.

    Mr T. shut your pie hole. You know nothing about this situation. To everyone else posting the negative comments. Keep it to your self. This family has been through hell. You know nothing about the situation. Let it all work itself out. If he is guilty then so be it. Just stop with the negative comments.

    I am so glad that you think you know Mr. Danny. He may or may not have done it but there is one thing I do know. If he did't, then why are all eyes on him. Not to say that Bobby, did't have something to do with it like running off at the mouth or something, but Danny should have walked away from the hole thing. Danny is not a perfect angel. Everyone knows this.

    To Hey Levon, I appreciated your statistics. Finally someone talking some common sense. Who cares what race a criminal is when we are all victimized by the degenerate attitude and lack of respect for human life. I assume that your statistics take into account the percentage of each race to the population at large. Anyway thanks for the eye opening info.
