Woman woke up to find intruder standing over her in bedroom
This is Doyle’s second arrest for violence against women in past year
KINGMAN – A man is in jail following an alleged domestic violence assault – his second in two years.
On Nov. 25, Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Harry J. Doyle III, 47, of Kingman for aggravated assault by domestic violence, criminal trespassing and an outstanding warrant related to a 2015 domestic violence assault, all felonies.
At approximately 6:30 am, deputies responded to a residence in the 4000 block of Lum Avenue and contacted a 45-year-old female victim. While speaking with the woman, deputies observed scratches to her neck, arms and shoulders.
According to the victim, she was sleeping and woke up to Doyle standing over her. He began to choke her and hit her with a table while she was still in the bed. He left the home after the assault.
The woman was able to call 911. A medical team responded and transported her to Kingman Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Deputies tracked Doyle to a residence in the 3800 block of Roosevelt Street where he was taken into custody without incident. A record check showed Doyle to have the warrant for probation violation issued by Mohave County Superior Court. He was transported and booked into the Mohave County Jail.
This isn’t Doyle’s first violent outburst. He was arrested in August of 2015 for choking a 40-year-old woman after she broke up with him.
The woman told deputies that Doyle pushed her and then grabbed her around the throat and shook her. Neighbors heard the woman scream during the assault and intervened.
Doyle left the home prior to deputies’ arrival. When arrested at a local motel, Doyle reportedly told deputies he and the woman argued, but he denied touching her. A grand jury handed down indictments on one count of kidnapping and one count of aggravated assault, both by domestic violence.
He pleaded guilty to the charge of aggravated assault by domestic violence, a Class 4 felony, and sentenced to probation, which was revoked and a warrant issued Nov. 18.
