UNION — After responding to a call Wednesday evening, the Union County Sheriff’s Office charged one man with attempted murder.

At approximately 8:15 p.m., deputies were dispatched to 213 Hancock Street, Union, in reference to an assault with a knife.

According to the incident report, officers arrived on scene and spoke with Caleb Hendrix Roberts who stated that he had been in a verbal altercation outside his residence. During the exchange of words, Roberts stated to officers that Clary Dana Woodsby, who lives at 213 Hancock St., came out of his residence and told Roberts and the other man they needed to stop arguing in front of his (Woodsby’s) house or he would make them stop.

The report states Roberts was unsteady on his feet and highly intoxicated, and he was placed under arrest and transported to the Union County Jail, where he was charged with public intoxication and violation of probation.

Officers could not immediately locate a stab victim at this residence. Officers began to interview Woodsby about the incident, but Woodsby became irate, yelled at officers, and would not comply with commands. He was placed under arrest for breach of peace and transported to Union County Jail.

While officers were still on scene interviewing witnesses on Hancock Street, someone advised them that a man had been cut and was at 231 Hancock Street. Officers located the victim, who stated that Clary Woodsby placed a knife to his throat and pushed him to the ground, at which time he cut his throat. A knife was later found near the residence which is believed to be the knife used during the incident.

The case is still open to investigation and charges are still pending in the case. As of Friday afternoon, charges were as follows:

— Clary Dana Woodsby, 49, of 213 Hancock St., Union, was charged with breach of peace and attempted murder.

— Caleb Hendrix Roberts, 27, of 213 Hancock St., Union, was charged with public intoxication and violation of probation.
