Vallejo police are searching for a convicted felon suspected of kidnapping and assaulting his estranged wife last week.

John Spencer, 26, is wanted for felony domestic violence, felony assault causing serious bodily injury, false imprisonment and kidnapping, police Sgt. Kenny Park said.

His 28-year-old estranged wife reported the assault from the 300 block of Avian Drive on Dec. 16, Park said.

Park said Spencer is suspected of forcibly removing the woman from her home shortly after midnight and severely beating her, causing significant injuries that required hospitalization, Park said.

She called police after Spencer dropped her back off at home, Park said.

Spencer is 6 feet tall, weighs 185 pounds and has ties to Vallejo and Fairfield, Park said.

He has a criminal history that includes weapons violations, robbery, murder and assault with a deadly weapon, and was released from a Louisiana prison less than two years ago, Park said.

Anyone who comes into contact with Spencer is advised not to approach him and to call police immediately, Park said.
