A Golden Valley man was arrested April 4 on felony counts of stalking, first degree burglary, domestic violence and a misdemeanor charge of criminal damage to property.

The victim had an expired order of protection against 55-year-old John W. Holcomb, who was seen on the victim’s property by reporting properties, the report said. Deputies arrived at the residence and found Holcomb on the property, behind a row of trees. When Holcomb approached the victim’s door and knocked, the report said, deputies heard the victim shout at him, “Go away, stay away from me!”

Holcomb was placed in handcuffs, and began to make aggressive statements to deputies. He refused to obey verbal orders, the report said, and a deputy unholstered his Taser before Holcomb submitted to the restraints.

The victim allegedly told deputies Holcomb had been coming to the property for the past three days. On the night of deputies’ arrival, Holcomb allegedly reached through a hole in the wall near the rear of the residence, opened the back door and entered. According to the victim, the hole had not been in her wall prior to the incident, and believed that Holcomb made the hole himself.

Holcomb was arrested and booked into Mohave County Jail without incident.
