Mayer Woman Robbed-Police Need Help to ID Suspect

On Friday October 6th, 2017 at approximately 4:06 P.M. Prescott Police Officers responded to a scenic overlook near Pioneer Parkway and Williamson Valley Road after receiving a call from a woman reporting a robbery.

The victim, a 56 year old female Mayer resident, reported that she was sitting in her vehicle, writing in her journal when an unknown male suspect approached her vehicle. The victim said the man asked her about the nearby trail system and asked if it was good for mountain biking. The victim exited her vehicle to speak to the man about the trails. During the conversation, the male suspect grabbed the victim by her hair and struck her head on her vehicle, then reached inside to take her wallet. The male suspect removed cash that was inside the wallet and threw the wallet back into the car. The male suspect then fled the area in an unknown direction. The victim received minor injuries as a result and was treated by paramedics and released from the scene.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 20-30 years of age, with a dark moustache. He was wearing a blue t-shirt, blue jeans and sunglasses and was driving a dark blue full-size, single cab pick-up truck with a bicycle in the back.

The Prescott Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify this suspect. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Detective Jeremy Brazell at (928)777-1925. Callers who wish to remain anonymous and who want a cash reward must call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
