SALISBURY — Deputies arrested Trevor Wayne Timm, 16, after an investigation of an earlier assault.

According to Captain John Sifford, spokesman for the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, on April 21 deputies went to the 7900 block of Bringle Ferry Road to investigate an assault. When they arrived at the address, they saw a group of ten or fifteen people standing around a black truck. Members of the Liberty Fire Department were in the bed of the truck, administering aid to a shirtless fifteen year-old, who was complaining that his head hurt.

A Dr. Baker was on the scene, Sifford said, and told deputies he was worried there may be a fracture involved and that the victim needed immediate medical attention. While waiting for EMS, deputies got statements from the victim, who said he had gone to a garage on Poole Road earlier to talk to Timm. According to Sifford, an argument started over a girl, and Timm hit the victim in the head with a metal pipe.

The victim was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Hospital. After conducting interviews and a thorough investigation, Timm was identified as the suspect. He was arrested at around 6 p.m., Wednesday, and charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. Timm was charged at the magistrate’s office in Salisbury and placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.
