Suspected affair leads to kidnapping, assault charges
Police: Man thought victim was cheating with his lady

Miner Staff Reporter

A man found tied up inside his home Tuesday said he was attacked by a jealous boyfriend who thought the victim was having an affair with his girlfriend.

The 50-year-old man was discovered inside his home in the 3800 block of John L Avenue around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday by a neighbor who heard his cries for help, according to Mohave County Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter.

Two people have been charged with kidnapping and assault in the incident, including the man's roommate, Tiffany Marie Hill, 28, and her boyfriend, Samual G Chambers IV, 30. Authorities said they were arrested after returning to the scene of the crime with the victim's car.

The assault reportedly began Monday night and stretched into Tuesday after Chambers went to the home to confront the victim. Chambers believed that the man was having sex with Hill, Carter said.

The man said he was restrained with zip ties and beaten with a retractable baton for several hours. He complained during the assault that the zip ties were too tight, so they were replaced with tape. The victim was also gagged with a rag, Carter said.

The assault continued until Chambers and Hill left in the victim's car around 9 a.m. Tuesday. The man said he lost consciousness before waking, freeing himself of the gag and calling out for help until he was found more than seven hours after the suspects had left.

The man was treated for a large laceration to his head and a fractured arm.

Deputies put out a bulletin on the victim's car but didn't have to look long after the suspects returned to the home in the car around 8 p.m.

Deputies established a perimeter around the home before entering the home and finding Chambers and Hill hiding inside, Carter said.

Both were booked into the Mohave County for felony kidnapping and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Both Hill and Chambers also had multiple outstanding warrants.

I feel so bad for the man who suffered this attack. He will probably have PTSD from this brutal attack and I hope that he has lots of counseling and support to get past it. Shame on the disgusting people who did this to him.

I agree with all these other posts. Keep calling the cops on these people! Don't confront these people, you shouldn't even have to, you are not law enforcement. Don't put up with their threats. They are just trashy dirty tweekers. Yes, they can be very violent and dangerous because they are out of their minds on drugs and flip out on people. But you're better than these disgusting people, do not fear them! They must be really high to think they have the power to run the neighborhood and tell people "People who call the cops don't last long." I encourage everyone to keep calling law enforcement and get together to form neighborhood watches and clean up communities. Give these low lives so much pressure that they have three choices:
a) clean up their act and their yard
b) go to jail or
c) move away

"People that call the cops don't last long" ???
How do these morons know who's calling the cops? The police and the Sheriff's Department DOES NOT relaese the names of the person(s) who called the police of Sheriff. Of course, if you're dumb enough to confront these idiots, then they have a pretty good idea. A friend of mine used to call the police every time his "neighbors" started playing their loud music, in their cars and house. The cops showed up, every time. The "neighbors" didn't know who to retaliate against. Mainly because, unknown to my friend, five other people were complaining to the police department at the same time.. Eventually, they "got the message".

We call the cops as often as necessary. Not going to let the little wannabe thugs intimidate us. Neither should anyone else.

I grew up with BJ, its just sad to see him in this state of mind/body. This isn't the first friend I have lost to drugs and I am sure it won't be the last. I hope he can clean up while he is away.

re: "people that call the cops don't last long"

You are correct. BUT people that don't tolerate this crap and fix the problem in their own neighborhood continue to thrive.

This is a response to "does anyone else notice this." I moved to Kingman a year ago, and this area of was close to my work until we relocated. This area called "Butler" is not in the Kingman city limits and patroled by Mohave County Sheriff. Kingman city officials do not want "Butler" in their city limits. This area would cost the city to much money to repair. So they leave the job the county, and we all suffer with the consequences.

Article comment by: I live in the area

@ Dean Freeman.
I happen to live in the general area, and I can assure you, that the MCSO can be called. These people are more bark than bite, because I have cleaned a whole ring of drug dealing, stolen good fencing, and scrap metaling dirt bags from my area. If you make it too hot for them to stay, they won't live in the neighborhood long! And oh yes, I was threatened too. Six years later nothing more has happened than a lot wheel spinning, engine revving and whining from their car windows in passing.

I've known two retired couples that have bought in that area, becouse they could aford it, but in the first week they were aproached and told
" people that call the cops don't last long"
So they see the drug deals going down, the kid getting hit, the wife being abused, and the only thing they can do is go in the house, and lock the door. How Sad

Article comment by: anyone else notice this

When I read about crime in kingman with front page stories like this or mohave 911 reports, it appears that about 90% always takes place on the same streets and in that same area. Are those facts ignord or does everyone just expect this.
