Authorities have arrested a man they found bleeding in his car Monday morning on N.C. 86 South near the Hampton Pointe Shopping Center.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies and Hillsborough police responded to a 911 call at 10:52 a.m. from a motorist who saw blood on the side of the man’s car in the N.C. 86 median between the Sheetz and the shopping center, according to a news release. The man said he had been stabbed and asked the motorist to call 911.

Officers determined the man, who said he had a gun and threw a suicide note out the car window, had a previous injury, according to the release.

Authorities removed him from the car without injuring him further and medical personnel took him to the hospital, the release said. No one else was hurt.

The man, identified Monday as Charles Javon Eubanks, was charged Sunday in Gaston County with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury in Belmont, North Carolina, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested him at 9:15 p.m. Monday after he was released from Duke University Hospital, according to a news release.

“Because the victim of this crime is Eubanks’ wife, the Orange County magistrate placed him into the Orange County Detention Center under a domestic violence hold,” the release said. Eubanks will be taken to Gaston County for his first court appearance on the charge Wednesday.
