Do you know these men? UNC Police want to talk with them about Silent Sam protest

UNC Police are looking for two men who attended the Silent Sam protest on campus Aug. 20.

The men, whose photos were posted to the department’s Twitter account Thursday evening, are “persons of interest in the investigation into McCorkle Place activities on Aug. 20,” police said.

A person of interest is someone who police think may have information about or be involved in a crime. That person has not been charged with a crime.

UNC Police spokesman Randy Young said police are not releasing any more information at this point. The investigation is continuing, he said.

Anyone with information that could help identify the men or help with the investigation can email police@unc.edu or call Detective Ellis at 919-962-8176.

18 people charged

Although Chancellor Carol Folt said after the second Silent Sam protest Aug. 25 that none of those charged were affiliated with UNC, one of the now 18 people charged since Aug. 20 has a campus address, another is a graduate student, and a third is a UNC lecturer.

Police have charged 17 people. A citizen has accused the 18th person — UNC teaching assistant professor Dwayne Dixon, 46, of Durham — of simple assault, which means no weapons were used and an incident did not cause serious injury. Dixon, who teaches in the Department of Asian Studies, was served with a criminal summons Aug. 30 taken out by Patrick Howley, editor-in-chief of the Big League Politics news site. It orders Dixon to appear in court on the assault charge Sept. 27, and is different from an arrest warrant. A criminal summons is issued when a person goes to the magistrate’s office and accuses someone of committing a crime against them.
