On Monday December 18th around 3:18 p.m. CHP dispatch transferred a call to the SHASCOM dispatch center.

The 911 caller was a woman screaming for help and could be heard pleading with someone to stop choking her.

The 911 call then dropped.

CHP was able to provide an approximate location of Thumper Drive in Shingletown based on the cell phones location at the time of the call.

Deputies responded from the Redding area.

Deputies surrounded the house and a female came out carrying a baby.

She claimed that she had been sexually assaulted by her husband Joshua Levi, a 35 year old.

She said that her husband was inside the house but refused to come out.

Using the patrol car’s PA system the deputies asked Levi to come out of the house.

After several minutes with no response the deputies approached the house.

Deputies found a Pit Bull dog just inside the door that aggressively turned on one of the deputies as he tried to get the dog out safely.

The deputy had to shoot the dog to protect himself.

Deputies searched the house while asking Levi to come out.

The entire house was searched and Levi was not found.

Deputies then found a hidden door on the floor inside the bedroom closet.

The door opened to a small room and crawl space under the house.

Inside the room were several marijuana plants.

After searching the small room and not finding Levi, Sheriff’s Office K9 Thor was sent into the crawl space.

Thor immediately found Levi hiding in the corner of the crawl space under a piece of insulation.

Thor apprehended Levi and pulled him back to the deputies subduing him until the deputies could take him into custody.

Levi was taken to a local hospital for treatment and later booked into the Shasta County Jail for domestic violence, sexual assault, obstructing officers, and assaulting a police K9.

We began the new week with plenty of sunshine and heat around northern California, but more heat, more wind and more potential fire danger are ahead for our area.
