KINGMAN - Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Jeanette Margaret Daves, 35, of Kingman Thursday night on suspicion of felony aggravated assault. Deputies responded to a call Wednesday in the 3800 block of Butler Avenue and met with a 39-year-old woman. The woman reported Daves was sitting in her vehicle playing loud music. The woman said she went outside to get Daves' license plate number so she could call the sheriff's office. The woman said that while walking in front of the vehicle, Daves drove forward, striking the woman in the hip. The woman refused medical treatment. Witnesses at the scene confirmed the woman's statements. Deputies contacted Daves on Thursday in the 3000 block of Hualapai Mountain Road. She was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Mohave County Jail.
KINGMAN - Mohave County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Units were deployed Tuesday evening to rescue two adult males who got stranded off the side of a mountain peak. Rodney Thorton, 50, and Robert Billings, 24, both of Las Vegas, were contracted by a Las Vegas telephone company to perform a site survey of a mountain area in the Hualapai Mountains. At about 9 p.m., Search and Rescue Units were deployed to the Hualapai Mountains and located the two men on Hayden Peak off of a steep slope around 11 p.m. Hayden Peak is approximately 8,000 feet in elevation and currently has 4 feet of snow in some areas. At that time, Search and Rescue Technical Rope Team and Support Teams from Kingman, Lake Havasu City and Bullhead City responded. Western Electronics of Kingman offered the assistance of their Sno-Cat equipment, which saved the SAR Team hours of hiking gear into the area. A 700-foot rope rescue was performed over multiple cliffs, which brought both subjects to safety and unharmed. Thorton and Billings were in good health other than being extremely cold. Thorton and Billings were brought to their vehicle, which was parked off of Hualapai Mountain Road.
