PRESCOTT – Authorities arrested two Prescott men Tuesday night on attempted homicide charges in connection with a hit-and-run accident Monday night that left another Prescott man critically injured.
According to Prescott Police Sgt. Mike Kabbel, detectives arrested the driver, Elliot Lee Patrick, 19, and a passenger, Kenneth Allen Roser, 19, after family members provided information regarding the suspects and the vehicle. Police questioned both men and confirmed they were in that area the night of the accident. Both men and the vehicle matched the description that witnesses provided.
The victim, Norberto Gonzalez, reportedly was walking home from work at around 11 p.m. when a pickup truck struck him in the
600 block of South Montezuma Street. The vehicle left the scene of the accident.
Emergency personnel took the victim to Yavapai Regional Medical Center for treatment and later they airlifted him to a Phoenix hospital. Kabbel said he remains in critical condition.
