Vancouver police were busy Monday night with two domestic violence cases.

At 5:47 p.m., officers responded to an apartment complex in the 3000 block of Northeast 57th Avenue for a report of a violation of a restraining order.

Vancouver police Officer Ryan Starbuck and his K-9 partner Ory were called.

A search of an apartment was necessary to find Darryl Smith, 47, who was arrested and taken to the Clark County Jail.

No other details were available.

At 7:34 p.m., Starbuck, Ory and other officers were called to 37th and Main streets in Vancouver for a domestic assault. Officer Ilia Botvinnik said Brandon Clark, 34, and a woman were driving through Vancouver when the alleged assault happened. After assaulting the woman, Clark fled the area and was not found, Botvinnik said. He said Clark is a Portland-area resident.
