The North Attleboro police have just released a statement about an incident just after 8 Sunday morning involving Patriots cornerback Jonathan Wilhite, which had initially been investigated as a home invasion. Here is the statement:
"On Sunday, September 27, 2009, the North Attleboro Police responded to the Cumberland Farms store in the Attleboro Falls area of town, after receiving a call from Jonathan Wilhite concerning suspicious activity. Mr. Wilhite stated that 2 subjects were in his parking lot when he arrived home, and one approached him on foot and yelled at him.
"Mr. Wilhite became concerned and ran to Cumberland Farms where he asked the clerk to call police. He did mention that he had pulled his groin while he was running. The matter remains under investigation by North Attleboro Detectives."
Wilhite was a surprise scratch from Sunday's Patriots-Falcons game, although he had not been listed on the injury report the previous week.
