Asst. Principal mugged

RALEIGH Raleigh police say the woman - Carrie Jacobs - was hit by the robber, but was not injured.

Jacobs came to school just before 7 a.m. and parked behind a school building. She told investigators a man in his 20s approached her as she got out and stole her purse.

Police had already assigned extra patrols to the area after a student walking to school was held up at gunpoint near the campus in recent weeks and another student reported being pushed to the ground by two men - one of whom had a knife.
