Man attacked, robbed by assailants posing as stranded motorists

A Charlotte father was attacked and robbed when he tried to help a stranded driver in south Charlotte and the assailants are still on the loose.
 
The victim told Channel 9 he saw a car with its hazard lights on Sharon Lane so he stopped to help.
 
But he said his good deed quickly turned terrifying when the stranded motorists jumped him from behind.
 
Mauricio Maeda suffered cuts and bruises 10 days ago and they still cover his face and body.
 
Being a mechanic, he was just trying to help a stranded motorist at night waving for help on the side of Sharon Lane.

“I asked him what was going on and he told me,” Maeda said. “He asked for charger cables and I told them I do have one.”               
 
As the 27-year-old father of two went to get the jumper cables he said another man came from behind and hit him in the back of the head with a bottle. Then both men pulled out a gun, attacked him and robbed him.
 
Maeda said he thought he was going to die and could only think of his two girls at home.

Now he can’t work because of his injuries.

“I always said to myself, ‘I was never going to help’ because I hear stories from other people and now I'm part of them.”
 
The victim said police did find the car the attackers were driving but they have not made any arrests.

Over 100k vote early on first day in Mecklenburg Co.

Mecklenburg County appears to like early voting. First-day totals equaled the numbers compiled in the first four days of early voting in 2010.

Early voting: What you need to know

Lines and strong demand by voters were evident again Friday. Marion White had to go to his North Charlotte polling place twice in order to vote.

"I expected lines about this long, but this morning the line was back there," White said, pointing 25 yards away.

Despite a state law cutting early voting by seven days this election, 118,000 ballots were cast Thursday in North Carolina.  Fifty-one percent were registered Democrats, 29 percent were Republicans and 20 percent were unaffiliated voters.

Political expert Michael Bitzer says they're a positive sign for Sen. Kay Hagan, who is engaged in a tight race with Thom Tillis. 
 
"It looks like Democrats do have their ground game in full effect this year," Bitzer said.

Bitzer says it also appears black voters are turning out in higher numbers than usual. At a polling site on Beatties Ford Road, Marvin Bias, who is black, said, "We think we've been targeted with these new laws, so that's why we've been motivated."

North Carolina's U.S. Senate race is pushing for even more voter energy. On Saturday potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be in Charlotte campaigning for Hagan. 
 
Next week Republican Mitt Romney will stump for Tillis. 
 
Michael Bitzer says it's a sign both camps know the race is extremely tight.
