PRESCOTT VALLEY - A 51-year-old woman is in stable condition after her estranged husband, Steven Craig Henry, 53, allegedly ran over her several times Wednesday.

Prescott Valley Police Sgt. Scott Stebbins said the two were at the state Department of Economic Security office on Bob Drive, where witnesses reported a disturbance. The man reportedly attempted to leave in his half-ton pickup and drove over the woman several times between the parking slot and driveway. Henry and the woman are married but separated, police said.

After responders transported the woman from the scene, Stebbins said Henry stayed at the DES office and cooperated with the police investigation.

After being taken to a Prescott-area hospital, the woman was flown by helicopter to John C. Lincoln Hospital in Phoenix.

Police arrested Henry on felony charges of aggravated assault with a dangerous instrument per domestic violence, endangerment per domestic violence, possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, and on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct per domestic violence and DUI-drugs.

Nearly two years ago, on March 20, 2013, Henry was the victim of a hit-and-run driver who caused his motorcycle to crash on Glassford Hill Road in Prescott Valley. The suspect, driving a beige or gold 1980s-model boxy four-door vehicle with several occupants inside, reportedly fled eastbound on Pav Way. Henry was flown to a Phoenix hospital with serious injuries.
