Officers were searching in Beverly and thought they were closing in on him near the victim’s house on Wednesday, but worried he posed a danger so they backed off.

Boston and State Police arrested Dixon Thursday night on Dudley Street in Boston after a short foot chase.

He is charged with domestic assault, threats to commit a crime, and witness intimidation.
