A man has been arrested and booked into custody in the violent death of a woman overnight in Citrus Heights.
Citrus Heights police Sgt. Michael Wells said officers were dispatched to the 7500 block of Cook Avenue at 1:43 a.m. Thursday in response to a report about an assault. Arriving officers found a woman who was severely injured. Wells said she was transported to a local hospital but did not survive.
Investigating detectives identified a person potentially responsible for the attack who was known to the victim, Wells said.
At 2:56 a.m., Wells said dispatchers received a call from that person, saying he wanted to surrender. Officers went to the man's location and arrested him. He was identified as William Patrick Hendrickson.
Wells said the identity of the victim would be released by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office.
