    How could anyone have information, you left out the description of the suspect?! Insert “black” here.

      Bo- I doubt that is a “black” area. It is probably an illegal Mexican area now. I have had several relatives to live in that area, and a couple of Mexicans brutally beat and robbed one grandmother and another Mexican shot and killed another grandmother. When the beaten woman went to the police, since she was a naturalized American citizen born in Mexico they did not believe her and the assailants (most likely illegals) were never apprehended. The woman shot was not an immigrant and her killer (an illegal) was caught and prosecuted. The naturalized citizens who came here legally and got their citizenship the proper way are being run out by illegals who don’t care for our laws or the lives they ruin. We have no problem in Forsyth County welcoming people from other countries as long as they are here legally and are living crime-free.

        Had to be black or Latino, right guys? No way could it be some stupid cracker. Wish I was as simple minded as you guys are. Life must be so easy when you can over-simplify things based on racist stereotypes.

    I’m the owner of the establishment…the suspect was indeed African American, and he was apprehended shortly before midnite…he was wearing a mask and is highly likely to also be responsible for the recent hotel robberies. And the area is highly integrated so enough with the stupid stereotypes.
