— Authorities in Fayetteville have arrested a man and accused him of holding his ex-girlfriend against her will for five days.

Christopher James Woodson, 22, was arrested and charged Monday morning with malicious assault in secret, felony breaking and entering, felonious restraint and misdemeanor charges including assault on a female and communicating threats.

Police spokesman Gavin MacRoberts said Woodson is accused of breaking into the victim's home last Tuesday. MacRoberts said the woman managed to get away on Sunday.

Woodson was being held without bail because of the assault charge. There was no immediate word on whether Woodson had an attorney.

    h3ardita11b4, I am a man and I do not do these kind of things. Stuff like this happens in other states too.

    I didn't lump ALL people into one basket. I said a lot of crimes committed in North Carolina are committed by non-natives who have moved here like yourself. Fayetteville is largely a transient society. Soldiers and contractors in this area, folks attracted to the RTP, lots of folks in North Carolina native to other states and countries. They're all human and a certain percentage of them, just like a certain percentage of locals commit crimes. You are the one saying all crime in NC is committed by locals. Get it straight.

    "r. Fact is a lot of crimes committed in North Carolina are committed by non-natives who have moved here, like yourself."

    And they say the locals don't "to lump all people into one basket". I knew that was a BOLD face lie.

    h3ardita11b4 - So i guess this does not happen with same sex couples from the state your from. Please enlighten us.

    I don't see in any story where there's proof positive that the man/men/people in general committing any crime in North Carolina are native to the state or not. We know, h3ardita11b4, that you are not. Let a native be the first to offer you the opportunity to leave our beautiful, if imperfect, state if you think it's so awful. Be my guest in finding some place better. Fact is a lot of crimes committed in North Carolina are committed by non-natives who have moved here, like yourself.

    I'm still waiting on someone to prove me wrong. The headlines (and the actions of the NC men) speak for themselves... :)

    Seems like h3ardita11b4 is an expert on NC locals. So tell us, Where are you from and how are the men and locals there?

    "Second our parents taught us NOT to lump all people into one basket no matter what the circumstances are. Sounds like you might need a little home training!"
    PLEASE tell me you didn't type all of that with a straight face! I couldn't keep one reading it. Lumping folks in one basket is all the locals do. Go ahead, search any story and prove me wrong; I'll wait. Secondly, there's a story EVERY week about how some NC "man" got his feelings hurt and did something heinous to his wife/girlfriend. Not for nothing but your last line cracked me up....LOL

    "is this kind of behavior typical for nc men. looks like your parents should've taught y'all how to play nice with the opposite sex."
    Well first "typical for nc men" is far from the truth h3ardita11b4. Second our parents taught us NOT to lump all people into one basket no matter what the circumstances are. Sounds like you might need a little home training!
