— 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.
