The victim told police that her attacker, 42 year old Marty Dupree Hilliard of Redding, was pursuing her in a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, even trying to block her vehicle in the roadway.
According to Redding Police, the woman kept driving all the way to Anderson out of fear for her safety. Officers located Hilliard as he was chasing the victim and tried to pull him over.

A police K-9 was brought in and the suspect was arrested after a struggle with police.
Hilliard was arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail. He faces charges of domestic violence, stalking and resisting arrest. Redding Police say that Hilliard was not armed at the time of his arrest.
