WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Greenville Police say a man is being charged after crashing his vehicle into a woman’s apartment Thursday night in what they are calling a domestic-related incident.
Greenville Police responded to a call to Sunshine Lane in Winterville Thursday night. When officers arrived, they found Wilfred Sutton had driven his car into the woman’s apartment, damaging three apartment units in total.
Officer James B. Johnson confirmed with WNCT that a neighbor heard a car revving its engine, and when they looked outside they saw Sutton drive directly into the complex.
Neighbors told WNCT around 7:18 p.m. Thursday their Ring Video Doorbell caught the motion and a ‘booming’ noise as Sutton crashed into the apartment. He then backed up, hitting the woman’s car, sending it across the parking lot where it hit a neighbor’s car. Sutton then drove his vehicle into the building again, this time going clear through the building and crashing into a third apartment located behind the first two units.
Sutton is charged with assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving, injury to real property and driving while intoxicated.
No injuries were reported by GPD, however, a neighbor told WNCT a man from the third unit hit was driven to the hospital after the incident by another neighbor later in the night.
