A Wadesboro man was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a woman with a knife.

Davon Marques Clyburn, 22, broke into a Wadesboro woman’s house between 1:30 and 2:30 a.m. on April 30, according to arrest warrants. He then allegedly attacked the woman, sitting on top of her and holding a knife in her face.

“Where is he at?” Clyburn allegedly asked the victim. “I’ll kill you and him.”

The victim had already ordered the suspect to stay away from the house, according to the warrants.

Clyburn was charged with felony first-degree burglary as well as domestic criminal trespassing, assault with a deadly weapon, communicating threats, injury to personal property and assault on a female, all misdemeanors.

He is due to appear in court for those charges on May 9. He also has a court appearance scheduled for May 18 on a misdemeanor charge of assault on a female and on May 30 on a misdemeanor charge of resisting a public office.

His criminal record in North Carolina begins with possession of drug paraphernalia in February 2011, according to online records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction. He has had subsequent convictions for receiving a stolen vehicle, larceny over $1,000 and possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.
