Update: Kill Devil Hills Police have confirmed that Jesse A. Mesaros, the other man wanted in connection with the road rage assault on Nov. 13, did return to the Outer Banks, turned himself in, and was arrested on Nov. 28. More details when they become available.
Kill Devil Hills Police reported on Nov. 23 that they have arrested and charged Victor E. Haynes, 27, of Kill Devil Hills, in connection with an assault incident from earlier this month. On Sunday, November 13, at around 8:15 p.m. a 37-year-old local man reported being run off the road by a black Dodge pickup in the area of Martin Street in Kill Devil Hills. The driver of the Dodge and his passenger then followed the victim to the Dare Centre and assaulted him.
The investigation determined one of the occupants of the Dodge was Jesse A. Mesaros, 22, and warrants were obtained for his arrest. Mr. Mesaros is out of state but has been in touch with investigators by phone and indicated he will turn himself in once he returns. Today, the other occupant, Mr. Haynes, came forward and has been charged as well.
Both men are charged with Assault Inflicting Serious Bodily Injury. The Kill Devil Hills Police Department would like to thank the public for their assistance with this investigation. The Department received a number of tips and believe intense public pressure on these individuals contributed to their peaceful surrender.
