College Students Facing Assault Charges

Two local college students are charged with breaking down the door of an apartment and beating up the people inside. Police say, it's all over a girl.

Greenville Police responded to the incident at Copper Beech Apartments on Silver Maple Lane in Greenville early Sunday morning.

Police say two men tried to get another to come off his deck to fight them. When the man refused to leave his home, police say the suspects broke down the door of the apartment and beat up the three young men inside. Police say the victims were bleeding but did not seek medical attention.

Police arrested 21-year-old Tommy Falcone, who goes to East Carolina University, and 21-year-old Jacob Caudle, who goes to Pitt Community College, according to detectives.

Two of the assault victims are ECU students; one goes to N.C. State.

    They both sound like punk losers. Jail sounds like a nice place for them to be.

    Well then if Tommy do not go to college, then the must have gone before and either flunked out or dropped out, or maybe even got kicked out cause of disruptive behavior. Who knows! Jacob, I have not heard anything except what the media and you people are saying, so I don't know. Ashley and Tyler, all the candidates for President are horrible. To ?????, what are you a racist or something? Lance, how can you say ECU and Greenville when Greenville keeps growing all the time and at least 85% of the people love it there and there is so much fun. I guess you may be one of those gothic kids who complains all the time. And Abu of Greensboro, at least he got to be on Double Dare, which is a coincidence, unlike 99.9999999999% of kids growing up. If losing on just a game show caused him to act like a complete jerk, then he has some serious mental problems.

    Let me start off by saying that I do not condone anything that Jacob did. I have known him for well over 7 years now and know that he is no "thug". Not everyone is perfect and people do make mistakes. Before people start to judge him, maybe you should think about where he comes from, how he was raised, and what he has been through. He is an outstanding person who made a very bad decision and he should have to pay for his actions, whatever they may be. If you read this Jake know that all of your true friends love you and want you to get better and be the old jacob we all know and love!

    First of all, no one commenting on this page was there. People do drink and party in this city, it is well known fact, and fights happen all the time. Don't be miss understood it doesn't justify things, but when people talk and run there mouth a lot, fights happen, its how they start. This page try's to blow up how big of a deal this one fight is, when it's not. Report on all the robberies that go on in Copper Beach alone, or the shootings that occur in other areas in town on a constant basis. I live between both of the men that were on both sides of the fight. They are all around good guys, drinking mixed in and caused problems.... people aren't being killed or mutilated here, lets focus on something more than just a fight.

    these are not thugs in training, they are already full blown thugs. Atleast the black kid was just a kid. even at 16,he is still an immature kid. Doesn't make what he did right either. And yes, I called him a thug in training.
