— A Rocky Mount man was arrested Sunday on accusations that he hit a disabled man on the head with a pot, police said Tuesday.

The suspect, Randy Andrew Foster, 44, faces one count each of robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault on a handicapped person. He was in the Edgecombe County jail under a $25,000 bond Wednesday.

Investigators say Foster was an acquaintance of the victim but did not specify how they knew each other or what might have prompted the alleged assault.

The victim was treated at Nash General Hospital and released, authorities said.

    "but people can kill people much easier with guns. thats what they're made for."

    That is your opinion, and I can respect that, but I wholdheartedly disagree and that's my opinion...emotion, greed, ego I think are just a few reasons why ppl kill other ppl! ""IMO""

    I forget if it was Charlton Heston or Tommy Chong who said "You can pry my pot from my cold, dead hands..."

    "All you gun control fans take note -- it was a pot this time. Left to themselves, weapons aren't dangerous; but the people who use them can be."

    sorry, totally lame argument. guns are designed to quickly kill people (and animals). that's what they're made for.

    take note, the guy that was assualted didn't die. if a gun was used, he probably would have...

    i'm not anti-gun, but i can't see how people can use that lame argument that "people kill people, not guns".

    Good point openmind. Who wants to jump on the pot & pan control bandwagon?

    WRAL is on a roll with the headline titles this morning! First a toddler being thrown from a balcony and now a pot assault. Quite an entertaining morning! :)
