Arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault

* Carlton Patrick Blanton, 32, College Grove. Held without bond for court on Oct. 28. Also charged with: violation of bond conditions, domestic assault, resisting arrest, possession of a Schedule II drug (oxycodone) and possession of marijuana.

Law enforcement was dispatched to a home in Chapel Hill when a neighbor called 911 on Oct. 21 because they could hear Blanton yelling and his estranged wife crying. Four officers responded, and were finally able to get the woman and two children out of the house. It took all four of them, and several applications of Taser and pepper spray, to subdue Blanton after he ran out of the house, allegedly with a 6-inch knife in his hand.

In September, Blanton was indicted by the grand jury. He was charged with charged with aggravated burglary, sexual battery, three counts of aggravated assault, and four counts of rape. The victim listed in those charges was the same person as in this case.

"While at the jail, Patrick kept stating that he was screwed and that he would never get out of jail for what he did," reported Chapel Hill Police Officer Aaron Huitt, who was one of the first on the scene.
