ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – A local man wanted for attempted murder has been arrested.

On Monday, the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office arrested John Antonio Boseman III in the 1300 block of S. Williams Circle in Elizabeth City. The sheriff’s office made the arrest with the help of the United States Marshals Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Boseman was arrested without incident and was served with warrants for Attempted First-Degree Murder, Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill Inflicting Serious Injury and First-Degree Burglary. Authorities say these incidents all happened on November 1.

Officials also served Boseman with a warrant for Felony Probation Violation.

He was taken to the Magistrate’s Office, where he was placed under a $45,000 cash and secured bond before being taken to the Albemarle District Jail.
