Around 7 a.m., Chief Chuck Hasty said officers responded to a call of a man assaulting a woman at the intersection of Highway 158 and Old Farm Road.
They found Trevor Harvey, 27, of Roanoke Rapids, in the roadway and found the victim sustained minor injuries from the assault.
Officer J. Spragins arrested and charged Harvey with assault on a female, interfering with emergency communications, damage to property and impeding the flow of traffic.
Hasty said the interfering with emergency communications and damage to property counts stem from Harvey reportedly smashing the victim’s phone.
He was jailed without opportunity for bond and has a June 16 court date.
The victim was treated by Halifax County EMS on scene.
