SALISBURY, Md.- A man who was on the Salisbury Police Department's most wanted list for allegedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend has been arrested, authorities have announced.

On Saturday, March 2, a Maryland State Police trooper located 22-year-old Elijah Rashawn Kellam of Salisbury and took him into custody. He was charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and dangerous weapon with intent to injure.

Salisbury police said Kellam had been wanted since late December, when detectives launched an investigation into a domestic assault involving Kellam and his then-girlfriend.

According to police, the investigation revealed that the victim, who is pregnant with Kellam's child, had been assaulted numerous times by him since June 2012. Investigators said Kellam utilized a broom handle and struck the victim in the legs and back with it, causing injury. He also allegedly punched the victim in the face and body during a separate incident, police said.

Following his arrest on the aforementioned charges, Kellam was released on $25,000 bond.
