A Shasta County man has been arrested for the alleged assault of his girlfriend late last week.
According to a press release by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, local authorities responded on Friday, June 9, to a report of a domestic violence assault in the city of Shasta Lake, resulting in the arrest of a man identified as Alfredo Carrillo. Deputies from the Shasta Lake Station arrived at the scene to find the female victim, who alleged that she had been assaulted by Carrillo, her boyfriend.
The victim’s statements, coupled with visible injuries from the assault, constituted probable cause to place Carrillo under arrest on suspicion of felony domestic violence. Carrillo, reportedly known to law enforcement for uncooperative and confrontational behavior in previous encounters, was found near a bathroom doorway inside his residence when the deputies contacted him.
After deputies alerted Carrillo that he was under arrest and issued verbal commands, Carrillo allegedly refused to cooperate. In an ensuing argument with the deputies, Carrillo directed verbal abuse towards them, allegedly challenging them to fight while continuing to disregard commands to surrender.
In an attempt to evade capture, Carrillo reportedly barricaded himself in a bathroom.
In response, law enforcement employed the assistance of K-9 Deputy Kilo to apprehend him. Despite Carrillo’s violent resistance and physical confrontation with both deputies and the K-9 unit, he was eventually taken into custody, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Following the arrest, Carrillo was evaluated at an area hospital for any potential treatment needed for injuries sustained during the conflict. After being medically cleared, Carrillo was booked at the Shasta County jail on suspicion of felony domestic violence and obstructing or resisting arrest by force or violence.
No injuries to deputies or the K-9 were reported, the Sheriff’s Office said. It was unclear at press time whether Carrillo had retained an attorney.
