Officers took Charles Edwards Parks into custody about 5:45 p.m. in a wooded area off Jones Street inside the city, Interim Police Chief Todd Hendrix said.

Hendrix said police got several tips came in that Parks was in the area.

They spotted him at the edge of the woods, and officers ordered Parks to surrender, Hendrix said.

Parks complied, left the woods and was taken into custody without incident, Hendrix said.

Parks had eluded police almost 24 hours earlier after a standoff at a home on the 100 block of Williams Street, Hendrix said. (See video above.)

Spartanburg County SWAT assisted Woodruff police with the standoff that started about 6:30 p.m.

Spartanburg Sheriff Chuck Wright was at the scene of the standoff.

The scene was cleared about 9:15 p.m. when officers and deputies entered the home to find no one inside.

Parks faces charges for an incident in March when police said he assaulted his girlfriend and fired gunshots in her bedroom.

They also said he assaulted a man on Monday with a machete, hitting him on the back of his head. Parks then pulled a gun out and stuck it to the man’s head, police said.

Parks faces a long list of charges including for two counts of attempted murder, high and aggravated assault and battery, two counts of pointing and presenting a firearm, and two counts of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a felon.

More charges could be added.

Parks is being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
