A man accused of pistol-whipping another man at a house on Holmes Street, near downtown, surrendered after heavily armed police officers surrounded the house Wednesday morning.
Charles Douglas Mitchell, who turned 23 in the Wake County Detention Center on Thursday, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in an attack on Aaron Michael Glisson, 26, an arrest warrant showed.
Police also charged Mitchell with gun possession by a felon, saying that involved a .38-caliber revolver used to hit Glisson on the head and a .32-caliber semiautomatic pistol.
Glisson was taken to WakeMed Hospital while police tried to get Mitchell to surrender at 1116 Holmes St..

When Mitchell refused, Holmes Street was shut off and patrol officers called the department’s Selective Enforcement Team, which arrived with an armored vehicle to protect officers as they approached the building.
Mitchell gave up shortly after, police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan said.
Mitchell was held without bail for a court appearance Thursday.
The felony involved in the gun-possession charge was a 2010 conviction for attempted common law robbery, police said.
