♦ As the temperatures rise in Salisbury, N.C. the knives, guns, broken bottles, hammers, and clubs come out with bad intentions.  Violent crime can happen anywhere in Salisbury.  So far there are only four homicides this year which have happened in rapid succession, but our computer software at the RFP HQ is  predicting that number five will arrive within the next two weeks.

There is a sacred ratio between the number of stabbings, clubbings, wolfpack beatings, and shootings that generally bares homicidal fruit.  The magic spinner spins.  Lets hope none of our readers wind up with the arrow pointing at them.  Avoid nightfall in one of the most murderous cities per capita in the U.S.A.

According to Salisbury Police sources Thomas Jerome Hosch, 35, of Shaver Street in E. Spencer, was the victim of an “assault-knife” at the intersection of W. Horah and S. West Streets.  Hosch was cut and stabbed by an assailant he was acquainted with, but mercifully sustained only minor injuries. The crime was reported to 911 dispatch at 9:43 p.m. and brought Salisbury Police vehicles to the intersection.

No motive for the knife assault was provided and no suspect was named so far.
