It was not clear what prompted Major Alston Jr., 28, to give up and face the charges lodged against him, Chief Chuck Hasty said.
Police continue to look for Allen Boone Jr., 29.
Officer J. DeSare obtained warrants for their arrests after he took a report around 1:30 p.m. Saturday in which the victim said she was awakened by loud noises coming from the living room.
Alston was reportedly inside the bedroom and assaulted the victim.
Hasty said earlier this week the victim sustained cuts and scrapes but was not taken to the hospital for treatment.
It was not clear what motivated the break-in and assault.
Alston surrendered around 3:30 p.m., Hasty said in a statement.
He faces charges of assault on a female and breaking and entering. He was jailed without opportunity for bond and has a July 5 court date.
Police continue to encourage Boone to surrender.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the police department at 252-533-2810 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
