Neighbors say man exposed himself to children

It started out as a peaceful evening on Scottwood Terrace Thursday until two children frantically ran down the street screaming for help.

Regina Tucker was getting out of her car.
“I was at my car, and my back was turned, and she said, there he is, there, and I turned around real quick, and it was a red car,” Regina Tucker, a good Samaritan, said.
Tucker says an 11-year-old girl and her 5-year-old brother were terrified when they ran to her for help.
She says the children were walking down Easthaven Street, going house to house selling candy for school.
The girl told Tucker a man driving a red car slowed down and pulled up close to them.

“He had exposed himself to her, and she was very afraid,” Tucker said.

Tucker got the children into the house and called 911.

The news of what happened quickly spread around the neighborhood
Lisa Giancarlo and her daughter live across the street from where the alleged incident took place.
“It's horrible. It should not be like this, not in this neighborhood,” Giancarlo said.
Tucker said the children bravely told authorities everything that happened.

She's thankful she arrived just in time to help them.
“He just put me at the right place at the right time,” Tucker said.

Group calls on school board to hold Christian prayer before meetings

A group of Cleveland County law enforcement officers is behind a call to get the Cleveland County School Board to start holding Christian prayers before meetings. A letter on Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman's Facebook page calls for school board members to start every meeting with prayer. 

The letter from the Cleveland County Christian Law Enforcement Association calls for board members to start every meeting with prayer.  
School Board chairman Phillip Glover said the board discussed the issue a year-and-a-half ago and decided to implement a moment of silence before meetings. 
"That's an opportunity where if someone would like to pray the can pray silent," he said. 
The letter calls for board members to set time aside to pray out loud before meetings. Glover said he wants to hear what the public has to say about it. 
"I welcome that anytime we have a chance to listen to the community and hear their input," Glover said.
Supporters of prayer are being asked to attend the next school board meeting Monday at 7 p.m.

Officer uses tactical training to subdue suicidal man

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer who tackled a man who threatened to kill himself and tried to provoke officers to shoot him said his training for confrontations with armed suspects helped him make the decision, resulting in no injuries.
“As we're approaching the subject, we could see he had a knife and he wanted to harm himself.  He was telling us to kill him,” Officer Fred Paige said as he watched video of the confrontation shot Thursday night from Chopper 9 Skyzoom.

MUST-SEE: Police tackle man connected to arson investigation 

Paige was one of four officers who approached the man holding a knife to his own throat, and when he saw the man drop the knife, Paige saw his chance to subdue him.
“We're continually closing the gap on him, he drops it, we see his hands, he flinches, his hands were next to each other so I immediately did a tactical takedown,” Paige said.
But he did not know if the man may have had a gun.
“What I did know was that I could see his hands and I knew that I could close the distance between myself and him in a short period of time to be able to hold him,” Paige said.
“The training prepares them for those situations but once you're in it, it's not always ruled by the actions of the officer,” Capt. Brian Foley said Friday.
He supervises Paige and the other officers who responded to the call and said it was the best possible outcome, with no one hurt.
Paige said he had played one year of college football but his textbook tackle was really something he’d learned in training at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Academy.
“I think everything we did was on point, and the way we practiced was the way it got executed,” Paige said.
