    Am I the only who noticed that the two photos of the perp are two different people?

    This incident in fact happened in WAKE FOREST @ Cruizers located in the Wake Forest Crossing Shopping Center. Prayers are for the victim and his family.

    Pretty sure this was first reported this morning as a Sheetz. Thanks though.

    Hope the clerk recovers. Often times these places have one poor sitting duck working in these places wee hrs. I wouldn't have the courage to do so...

    I find it hard to believe this Sheetz has a WF address. It backs up to the Berkshire Downs "neighborhood" though. That's all you need to know about this stabbing.

    To call WF a mini Durham or Fayettenam is laughable. Wake Forest is like Mayberry compared to those two.

    WF is starting to sound like a mini Durham or Fayetteville.
    Prayers for the injured and that the person who tried to kill them is found quickly before they do kill someone.

    Prayers for J.L….a fine young man that is in college and working at his job and he gets stabbed by this guy. Let's pray for J.L.'s recovery and that the Police find the guy before his friends or family!
