Prescott police seek tips in 2010 stabbing

Prescott police seek the public's help to identify a suspect who stabbed a woman as she walked in the west alley of the 100 block of South Montezuma near the parking garage after 9 p.m. on Feb. 10, 2010.

The suspect is a white male, in his early 20s, who is about 5'10" to 6' tall. The man was wearing a woven skull cap or ski cap and a nylon ski jacket and may have been possibly driving a dark-colored, late model pick-up truck, said Lt. Andy Reinhardt, spokesman for the Prescott Police Department.

Prescott police believe the attacker was a frequent visitor to the downtown area, had close contacts there, and may have bragged to his companions about the attack, Reinhardt said.

"The suspect had just walked past the victim. The victim thought he was going toward a restaurant and she said it was closed," Reinhardt said. "He followed her as she continued walking toward the parking garage."

The suspect did not say anything to the victim, but stabbed her once with a knife when she turned around to see if he had followed her, Reinhardt said.

Then the suspect ran from the area, Reinhardt said.

The victim has since recovered from her injuries, Reinhardt said.

The person responsible for this unprovoked attack represents a continuing danger to the community, Reinhardt said.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is encouraged to contact the Prescott Police Department at 928-777-1988 during regular business hours, or 928-445-3131 after hours. You may also call Yavapai Silent Witness at 800-932-3232.
