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.
