    Wilson acres is a fine place, he was probably a victim of circumstance by being out alone so late.

    I LIVE here. As a female I am concerned for my safety, I have to walk my dog at all times of the night due to his very small bladder. This does not make me feel safe at all. I would love a description of this armed robber so I can protect myself.

      Don't live in the ghetto. Or potty train your dog to go on the indoor potty pad things they make might be a better idea then going outside.

        Wilson Acres isn't the ghetto. It's just a few blocks from campus, the vast majority who live there are students.

    this is crazy. G ville police need to do more to keep crime off the streets. There is always something going on in Greenville. I grew up there and the crime just keeps getting worse and worse and now My hubby daughter and I live in kinston and the crime here is not much better. The main problem here is drugs . As soon as we can we are moving to the country . Eastern north carolina needs more police and a wake up call.

    No "hmm" it can not be tracked. A GPS is a receiving device in most cases (especially with consumer devices).

    The robber stole a GPS...what an idiot. Can it not be tracked when it is turned on?

    Please put a description out there before this man robs and possibly shoots other victims. He needs to be stopped!

      Due to the fact that no "description" of the perp is givin, one must assume political correctness is running the show. Now that ECU is back......let the feeding begin!!!!
