The Shasta County Sheriff's Office says a Shingletown man has been arrested after his wife called 911 while being attacked, before the call dropped.

SCSO says it all started at around 3:18 p.m. Monday, when a woman called 911, connecting to the CHP, and could be heard pleading with her attacker to stop choking her. The call was then dropped. CHP was able to provide the location as Thumper Drive in Shingletown based on the cellular phone's location at the time of the 911 call. 

Deputies arrived, surrounding the house when a woman holding an infant came out. She said her husband, 35-year old Joshua Levi, had beaten and sexually assaulted her.

After several minutes attempting to contact the suspect from outside without a response, deputies tried to enter through the front door before being attacked by an aggressive dog in the house. The SCSO says the deputy shot the dog to protect himself.

During the search for Levi, officers found a hidden door on the floor leading to a small room in the house's crawl space. Sheriff's K-9 officer "Thor" then found Levi and he was taken into custody. 

Levi was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries before being taken to the Shasta County Jail. He's being charged with domestic violence, sexual assault, obstructing officer and assaulting a police K9.
