BROWNS SUMMIT, N.C. — Deputies are searching for a suspect in Browns Summit after a home invasion in Ruffin on Tuesday and a burglary in Browns Summit on Wednesday, according to authorities.

Multiple men reportedly broke into a home in Ruffin while a teenage girl was home on Tuesday morning.

The mother of the girl said her daughter was hit in the head with an antique soda bottle.

The suspects then allegedly tied her hands with the cord of a flat iron, her feet with a cellphone charger cord and used a third cord to hogtie her.

They wanted her to unlock her cellphone and used a butcher knife to cut her fingers to get her to unlock the phone, the mother said.

During the home invasion, the suspects took video games, consoles, jewelry boxes, old cellphones, alcohol, cigarettes and TVs.

The suspects were also linked to a burglary in the 7600 block of Caber Road in Browns Summit on Wednesday.

One person is in custody and deputies are still looking for 24-year-old Shiheem Williamson.

Williamson is described as a 5-foot-11 black man with a medium build. He has a goatee and dreadlocks.
