Police arrested a man Thursday suspected in a string of domestic violence acts, including threatening his girlfriend with a shotgun. At about 2 p.m., Fairfield resident Dermaine Salley, 34, was arrested after members of the Sacramento County fugitive task force, the Department of Justice and detectives from the Fairfield Police Department’s major crimes unit found him in Fair Oaks – about 60 miles northeast of Fairfield. Police said that Salley fled following a domestic violence assault that occurred last Sunday. One day after the alleged assault, Salley’s girlfriend reported the incident to Fairfield police, saying that Salley had threatened her with a shotgun and assaulted her at a home in the 2800 block of Gulf Drive, police said. The woman sought medical treatment at a local hospital, police said. When police arrived at the scene, they spotted a man driving from the residence. Officers were unable to locate Salley after searching the area, but arrested him in Fair Oaks three days later, according to police. Officers located and seized the shotgun allegedly used in the assault at the time of Salley’s arrest, police said. Salley was booked into Solano County Jail and is being held on an outstanding warrant related to charges of assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence.
