FAIRBURY – Fairbury Police arrested two people in connection with an alleged assault Friday night.
Police said 20-year-old Trenton Slama of Fairbury was taken into custody Friday on charges of felony 1st Degree Assault and Terroristic Threats.
Officers were dispatched to a residence in the 1000 block block of 5th Street just before 9 p.m. after receiving a call that a woman had been severely assaulted.
