Man wanted for murders in two North Carolina cities arrested


GREENSBORO, NC (AP) – Police apprehended a man wanted for homicides in two North Carolina cities for three days, according to a press release Thursday.

The Greensboro Police Department said Malek Anthony Moore, 29, was arrested on a local street without incident after receiving a phone call from a resident. Moore is being held without bail in the Guilford County Jail and it was not immediately known whether he had a lawyer.

Moore was wanted for first degree murder in the death of Christian Mbimba, 21, of Nashville, Tennessee, on September 3 in Greensboro. Police found Mbimba’s body on the street.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police were also looking for Moore for first degree murder in the death of Gabryelle Allnutt, 29, on September 6. Allnutt’s body was found on a street in Charlotte on Monday.

Allnutt was an artist who evacuated from New Orleans to Charlotte to escape Hurricane Ida, CMPD Captain Joel McNelly said at a press conference on Tuesday. The Charlotte Observer reported that she had worked at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts.

Police said Moore was also suspected of breaking into a Charlotte business on Monday.

On Wednesday evening, the FBI announced it was joining Greensboro Police and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in the search for Moore.
