Suspect arrested in attack on Self-Help CEO
DURHAM, N.C. (1/16/09)--Durham, N.C., police said they arrested a suspect Wednesday in the November beating and robbery of Martin Eakes, co-founder and CEO of Self-Help CU and the Center for Responsible Lending. Harry Wayne Massey Jr. was arrested Wednesday at a Durham apartment, police said in a news release. No one else has been charged in the incident (The News & Observer Jan. 15). Massey was wanted for felony possession of stolen property--a cell phone--which he was accused of having in his possession the day after the Nov. 24 attack on Eakes. Eakes was robbed and severely beaten by four men in a parking garage as he left his office Nov. 24 (News Now Dec. 2). He suffered multiple bruises to the head and face, a gash to his forehead that required 15 stitches and a torn bicep (The Herald-Sun Nov. 30). The incident occurred at about 8 p.m. as he was about to enter the parking garage used by employees of Self-Help. The men delivered between 20 and 30 blows, targeting Eakes’ head and face. They took his wallet and cell phone. Eakes said he did not know the men or if they were waiting for him in particular.
