Carjacker Clubbed With Frozen Turkey

In Fuquay-Varina, NC (near Raleigh), a 30 year old man robbed a gas station, ran across the street to a Harris-Teeter Supermarket and began beating Irene Bailey in an attempt to steal her car and make a getaway.

The carjacker was in turn attacked by other shoppers (including one who used a frozen turkey as a club). The man, Fred Irvin of Raleigh, managed to take the car but was arrested and taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated and released into police custody.

Irvin faces several charges relating to the attack on Bailey, the theft of the car, and a hit and run while driving the car.

I am glad to see people unwilling to be just observers of a crime...that people are willing to "wade in" and lend a club to the effort..even if it is a frozen turkey.
