Conway was taken to WakeMed for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Twenty-seven-year-old Justin Allen Priest, of Cape Breton Drive in Raleigh, was arrested in Durham Saturday night and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and taken into custody.
