A 38 year-old man is facing charges after Clayton Police responded Sunday morning to a domestic assault. Police were called to an apartment on Bent Branch Loop off Front Street for a disturbance.

Police said a female used a knife to defend herself against her husband.  The husband, Pedro Ramos, sustained non-life threatening injuries. He was treated at the emergency room and then transported to the Johnston County Jail where he was charged with assault on a female.

A police spokesperson said Monday additional charges may be filed against Ramos pending further investigation into prior incidents.
