    That area is no where upscale and no one has really commented on the story because for that area, that is not uncommon for criminal activity.

    couldn't have been Durham, they did mention upscale.

    Doesn't sound very upscale to me. The comment by Iworkforaliving is perfect.

    At least he didn't get stabbed in the face with a soldering iron by Clem.
