Beaufort County deputies responded early Monday to Frank and Shirley’s Restaurant in Aurora. They found the 75-year-old owner suffering severe injuries to his head and arms. The owner, who was not identified, was able to give a description of the assailants. That information along with details from residents and video surveillance which was circulated to the public and help from the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office led to the arrest of the suspects.
