The Jasper County Sheriff’s Department says a wanted man that they had been searching for has been arrested.
42-year-old Matthew David Weenig was taken into custody on Thursday after an arrest warrant was issued several months ago. According to Lieutenant Scotty Duncan, Weenig had been eluding capture for some time.
Weenig is accused of assaulting his then girlfriend, Ava Solis, at his home on County Road 249, about 3 miles north of Jasper. Meanwhile, Solis is continuing to undergo medical treatment for her injuries.
Weenig has now been charged with assault of a family/household member-impeding breathing or circulation, and his bond was set at $15,000.00.
