Rocky Mount police have arrested a man they say tried to kill two women with his car Monday morning.
Steven Felix was arrested last night after an officer spotted his vehicle. Officers say the man initially stopped for them in the L&L Store parking lot on Winsted Avenue, but then took off. He was arrested after a short police chase.
Felix is accused of trying to hit a woman on Sunset Avenue, near City Lake. That victim received minor scrapes while trying to escape the path of his car.
About 15 minutes later, police say Felix drove to the U Brush Em car wash and spoke to a woman while she was vacuuming her car. Police say he began harassing the woman and she reported it to the attendant. They say Felix got back in his SUV, struck the woman's car and then chased her with his vehicle. She was hit and fractured her knee.
Felix is being held on a $150,000 bond. He's charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder, two counts of felony hit & run, and failure to heed to light or siren.
