PENDER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) – Pender County Deputies responded to a disturbance at a home in Rocky Point just after 7 a.m., Wednesday where a male subject allegedly assaulted two people and damaged the home with a vehicle.
Following the alleged assault, the subject drove his vehicle into the side of the home causing extensive damage to the vehicle and the property at 91 Broken Spur Court.
He then used a hammer to break all the windows in the home and other vehicles located on the property.
At the time of the incident, there were eight people inside the home including children.
As deputies arrived, the male subject, later identified as Paul Anthony Aiello, stole a vehicle from the residence and fled the scene.
After a short pursuit, deputies stopped Aiello who then fled on foot.
