Police investigate several assaults on men in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina

  • The victims were assaulted around the time the bars closed, Wilmington police said.
  • In two Facebook posts this week about the alleged assaults, Wilmington police didn't say if investigators believe the crimes are connected.
  • Police declined to provide additional information on Wednesday, including details on the victims and locations of the crimes.
  • Authorities declined to make copies of police reports available at this time "to protect the integrity of this investigation and the safety of the victims," the Facebook post said.
  • There was a four-month lag in time between some assaults, and the locations of the crimes and other details are limited because of the victims' conditions then, police said.
  • Some of the initial reports came in as misdemeanor crimes, such as breaking and entering, with limited details, which made the investigation challenging, authorities said.
