— 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.
