— Goldsboro police have arrested the man they believe attacked a woman who was walking on North George Street Saturday night, stabbing her multiple times.

Shaun Bennett, 31, was charged Sunday with one count of attempted murder in the stabbing of Jenifer Bruner.

Bennett, who police say was "combative" with officer during his arrest, also faces two counts each of resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer and assault on a law enforcement officer.

He was being held Monday in the Wayne County jail under a $1 million bond.

Bruner was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital after the stabbing. She was treated for her injuries and released.

Police have not commented on a possible motive or the relationship, if any, between Bennett and Bruner.

    I keep thinking about getting one of those.

    Agree. Handguns created specifically for target practice and shooting competitions is a modern invention.

    That's a fact Jack!

    She should ahve been armed. She would have won that knife fight.

    But as for grizzly bear protection, most seem to prefer a .44 magnum revolver. Lightfoot3

    Can't argue with that, but I always preferred my 30-06 as it takes care of man or beast. I see your point, it'd be easier to whip out the ole pistol to take a grizzly our then get your rifle up. Never shot skeet with my handgun though, kinda silly in my book...waste of ammo & no scatter, would be concern the lead might hit someone on the way back down. I personally shoot skeet with my Browning 28 gauge. Still, in China prior to the 14th century before "hand cannons" made it to Europe I seriously doubt they were used for target practice unless you consider their enemies targets....it's also doubtful that there were firing ranges or that they were used for skeet shooting back then when they were invented.

    redstarlean - The firearms requirements are stricter up North. I would suggest you return there if you don't like how we do things here. Otherwise, educate yourself and leave those of us who were born and raised here alone.

    redstarlean, many of us do go through a training class on firearms - it's given by our responsible parents at an early age in most rural parts of this state...

    "but down here the "culture" seems to be guns and jesus and the more the better" - redstarlean


    Don't need any Jesus, Zeus, or Vishnu, but can always use more guns.


    "People who have guns should go through a training course to show their proficiency" - redstarlean


    I'd be okay with that.

    "Except the ones designed for target shooting, or trap and skeet. " - me


    Oops, didn't mean to say "trap and skeet" for handguns! :)

    I can understand using a long gun to hunt for FOOD , but down here the "culture" seems to be guns and jesus and the more the better. People who have guns should go through a training course to show their proficiency just like getting a license to drive a car, but we know that is not the case, nor does the NRA want that

    "Hand guns ARE designed specifically to kill or maim a human being" - beaulahjackson4


    Except the ones designed for target shooting, or trap and skeet.


    "Generally speaking a hunter does not use a hand gun to shoot a deer.....a 30-06 maybe but hand gun no." - beaulahjackson4


    You're right in that generally, deer hunters don't use handguns, though some do. But as for grizzly bear protection, most seem to prefer a .44 magnum revolver.


    "I guess he was the rare American who was not packing a six shooter." - piene2


    You're confusing the year 2012 with 1886. Not many people pack a "six shooter" these days.
