— A Raleigh man was arrested Tuesday on charges that he assaulted his ex-girlfriend and tried to kill her new boyfriend.

Quentin Devon Gulley, 20, of 1125 S. Bloodworth St., faces charges of attempted murder charge and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. An arrest warrant lists the weapon as his feet.

Gulley was in the Wake County jail Thursday under a $1.15 million bond. He is set to make his first court appearance Friday on those charges.

The man Gulley is accused of assaulting, Shaun Jenkins, was listed in critical condition at WakeMed Friday morning.

Gulley also faces one count of assault on a female from a Jan. 9 incident in which he punched a woman in the face, according to the arrest warrant.

Arrest documents don't indicate a bond amount for the assault on a female charge. He's scheduled to be in court for that on Jan. 27.

Gulley has served two previous year-long prison sentences for convictions including attempted common-law robbery, assaulting an officer and selling drugs, according to state Department of Correction records. While in prison, he has racked up 13 infractions, including assault, fighting, threatening staff and involvement with a gang.

    I wish the moderators at WRAL would have a default response every time someone mentions "parole" in one of these articles. The wording should go something like this:

    North Carolina used to have parole for incarcerated prisoners. That law changed in 1994. People who have been charged with crimes since then are not eligible for parole. They serve the time that they are given. Period.

    Wow, he's a real winner huh? Seriously though,Is anyone really surprised here?

    "attempted" murder. something else he's not very good at. wonder how much time he'll serve this time? what can he possibly have to say to a parole board??? with his prison record, what did he tell them in the past? what is the incentive for "good behavior" in the joint? none, from the looks of it ... if we have revolving doors in prison, why arrest anyone anymore? seems like a waste ...

    People like this never "get it". It's a shame our justice system still hasn't figured that out.

    He is a menance to society and himself. Keep him off the street and locked up. Some people you just can not help and he seems to be pne of them. He does not get it even after spending time in jail.
