State v. Wright, 210 N.C. App. 52 (Mar. 1, 2011)

The evidence was insufficient to establish that a secret assault occurred. In the middle of the night, the victim heard a noise and looked up to see someone standing in the bedroom doorway. The victim jumped on the person and hit him with a chair. The victim was aware of the defendant’s presence and purpose before the assault began. In fact, he started defending himself before the defendant’s assault was initiated.
