Police brief: Deputies arrest woman on assault charges
Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies on Aug. 10 arrested Annette Davalos, 20, on charges she assaulted her boyfriend in their Castle Canyon Mesa home.
A Sheriff's Office news release stated that a woman called and said her daughter told her that her live-in boyfriend had threatened her. The woman said she was on the way to the home and asked for help.
When deputies arrived, they found no one home. Later, the woman's daughter told her mother that she had resolved the conflict.
Shortly thereafter, deputies received a call that Yavapai Regional Medical Center had admitted a 20-year-old Prescott Valley man for a stab injury. The release stated he told hospital staff someone assaulted him behind a business in the Frontier Village Shopping Center. Tribal Police searched the Center while deputies interviewed the injured man.
He told deputies he had been involved in a traffic dispute and the other party punched and stabbed him. Deputies could see no injury to his face, however, but found a stab wound to his thigh.
When Davalos arrived at YRMC to check on her boyfriend, she denied any fight with him. She later changed her story after deputies found fresh blood on one of her fingers, the release stated. She told deputies she had argued with her boyfriend, grabbed a kitchen knife, and stabbed him in the leg when he came toward her.
Deputies recovered the knife and marijuana paraphernalia from the home, and booked Davalos into the Camp Verde Detention Center on two counts of Aggraveted Assault and two counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
