DEPUTIES: Greenville Man Jailed After Serious Assault

A Greenville man accused of a serious assault spent the early part of Monday morning behind bars.

Deputies at the Pitt County Detention Center said 48-year-old Julio Santos was arrested by the Pitt County Sheriff's Office and booked shortly after 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Santos is facing one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

He was not granted a bond for that charge.

We are working with investigators to learn more about the circumstances leading to Santos' charge.

Santos is due in court for a first appearance on the charge later Monday morning.
