Responding to the officers, a woman with cuts all over her body, and another woman, who said she had been attacked by Anselmo, with a machete, according to police. The first woman, Anselmo’s ex-girlfriend, was taken to a hospital. Her condition is not known. The second woman’s identity has not been released.

Anselmo fled the scene before authorities arrived, WNCT reported. His getaway vehicle was found wrecked and abandoned a few miles away, the report said.

The authorities have to find Anselmo on Monday, hiding in a deserted house in the neighboring Greene County. He was arrested and taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries he suffered in a car accident, WCTI reported.


Anselmo was brought back to the Pitt County Detention Center on Monday, where he was under no bond, WITN reported. He has a court-appointed attorney and will appear before a judge next month, according to the report.
