WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Police have arrested and charged 40-year-old Ronald Grimes with assaulting a 79-year-old man.

John Neal was assaulted earlier this month in the 4500 block of Pryro Drive, according to police.

Police say Grimes cut and struck Neal multiple times on the head. Neal was found later that night, on the floor, bloody and bruised, when a neighbor went to his house to check on him.

Grimes is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Grimes is in jail under a $1 million bond.
