— Cary police arrested a man Wednesday morning in a wooded area off Interstate 40 near East Chatham Street following a domestic dispute near Cary Towne Boulevard. 

Officers initially responded to a domestic assault call on Ivy Lane behind Cary Towne Center about 1 a.m., but police said the man left the scene after assaulting his girlfriend.

After setting up a search area, police surrounded the man in an area with thick brush about 6 a.m. He surrendered to authorities about 7:30 a.m., a Cary town spokesperson said. 

It wasn't clear whether the man had any weapons or injuries, and his name was not released. The woman, whose name was also withheld, suffered minor injuries, police said. 

No roads were closed while police waited for the man to surrender, but traffic on I-40 was impacted because of the police presence on the shoulder of the highway. 

No other information was immediately available.

    TeenDad4_WorldTour: "Not to mention the random homicides that the Cary police try to make seem like domestic violence cases by framing innocent people with the help of Wral reporters. Its all an attempt to make Cary seem nice an pleasant so the people and the money keep coming in".

    What random homicides are you referring? I sure hope you are not referring to the Brad Cooper case. Remember this: The BC case was circumstantial and was presented as such. A JURY OF 12 CONVICTED HIM ON THE MERITS OF THE CASE PRESENTED! CPD did not convict him..the jury did!! And have you ever thought about the fact that CPD has recently added a cyber crimes unit that actually does what it is paid to do...catch child molesters and child pornographers? You conspiracy theorists are really something!

    Cary is the only city that increased its crime rate. Between child molestors, so called men killing their wives, and stealing (larceny and especially white collar)this town is one of the up and coming towns for crime in all of NC

    You people don't even believe it when its reported!!!

    "Crime rose by 8 percent in Cary, largely driven by a 12 percent increase in burglaries and 8.5 percent rise in larcenies"

    "Town of Cary 2011 crime statistics should show a decrease of 8% in Part I crimes (violent crimes) as shown in the SBI reporting data (attached). The results shown in the FBI’s preliminary report – that Town of Cary Part I crimes increased 5% -- are inaccurate and are being revised to show the actual statistics for the Town of Cary. The correction will be reflected in the FBI’s final report released in September."

    Town of Cary website. Just for you westernwake1. Quit perpetuating false security to people that should be very concerned about their dangerous town.

    "VIOLENT CRIME IN CARY has increased every year for the past 12! This city is steadily becoming a dangerous place to live. The trend is going up and that information in indisputable. The fact the you do not acknowledge it is what will make for more victims over time."- Thats because all the northerners are moving in..Cary= Concentrated Area of Relocated Yankees! LOL!

    Funny how WRAl can post a story on the violence in Cary but not even MENTION what happened at the Circle K in Garner at the corner of Old Stage Rd. and Hwy 401! Guess they don't care what happens on that side of the county. Even funnier that they did not post my earlier comment about the same issue! Censorship at it's greatest!

    Please go to the National Web site or the NC web and learn about abuse so that we an stop abuse.-janicestricek'

    Oh I get it, but if the victims would leave after the first time then it wouldn't be problem. I have helped several women get away from their abusers, get them to a safe place (sometimes with their children in tow) and they may stay gone for a week but generally they go back...and either end up dead at the hands of their abuser or they often take their own lives. I understand all the statistics and the reasons they use as in they are afraid, can't afford it, have no self-esteem, etc., etc. I feel we would lower statistics tremendously if the victims didn't go back....repeatedly, grew a back bone, or decided they would no longer subject their children to abuse, and choose not to be a victim. Yes it is about power & control, THEY need to take control of their life. Help is available to them, but they have to choose to be in charge of their own life.

    teresabee - in Raleigh and Cary? You hear this happening in Raleigh and Cary? Sorry, but used to live where there's nothing but woods and even there, it's rare for a suspect to be hunted in them.

    hotshot - where are there 20 arrests per day in Cary or even Raleigh for DV? I'm not seeing those arrest records.

    "...why were there so many cops there for this arrest? Was the guy armed? I understand he's a dangerous criminal and this is serious, but I just wonder about the number of cops. Maybe something more will be reported."

    But it's not like they were trying to arrest someone in broad daylight. To catch a suspect in the woods at night, it would take this many cops to increase the liklihood of a capture, I would guess.
