August 29, 2017

KINGMAN — Steve Morgan Yarbrough, 34, and Uriah Dianne Spalding, 19, both of Kingman, were arrested Saturday.

Yarbrough was arrested on suspicion of trespassing, a felony, along with resisting arrest, an assault per domestic violence warrant, a failure to appear warrant — both warrants issued by Kingman Justice Court, all misdemeanors. Spalding was arrested on suspicion of trespassing, a felony.

Deputies arrived at residence in the 3800 block of John L Avenue because of a report of suspicious activity. The woman who reported the matter was checking on the residence for a close relative who was away but instead found people inside. She also said the man, Yarbrough, started behaving violently toward her.

Deputies arrived to find Yarbrough and Spalding walking away from the residence in an alleyway. They ordered them the stop, but they continued walking. Deputies caught up with the subjects and recognized the man as Yarbrough.

Deputies informed Yarbrough that he has warrants, but Yarbrough resisted as deputies were taking him into custody and ended up using a Taser on him. Spalding was taken into custody without incident. They were booked into Mohave County Jail.

Later that evening, Yarbrough was charged with aggravated assault — physical injury, aggravated assault — that impedes breathing, kidnapping and burglary, all felonies, stemming from an incident reported on Aug. 1. A 34-year-old woman reported that Yarbrough broke into her residence in the 2600 block of Thompson Avenue and knocked her out. The victim awoke to find herself tied up and Yarbrough was gone.. The victim said that she untied herself and notified authorities. Deputies observed red marks on the victim’s neck, wrists and ankles. She received medical treatment afterward.

At that time, deputies attempted to locate Yarbrough without success.
