The victim also told officers bells normally hang from the back door knob. Upon closer examination, the bells had been removed from the door knob and placed elsewhere.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office detectives division is investigating the incident and also looking for a suspicious person possibly seen in the neighborhood hours before the alleged incident.
