Aggravated assault, shoplifting

Jasmin Rey Hernandez, 24 of Covina, California, was arrested for an aggravated assault felony and a misdemeanor in shoplifting.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a business on Nov. 20 in the 4700 block of Highway 95 if reference to a disturbance. Upon arrival deputies observed the victim laying in the parking lot of the business.

The victim advised deputies that a female subject, later identified as Hernandez, had attempted to exit the business without paying for merchandise.

The victim chased after Hernandez, who got into her truck, and the victim grabbed onto the side of the truck in an attempt to stop Hernandez from leaving.

Hernandez then placed the vehicle in reverse and allegedly accelerated forward, with the victim still holding on.

The victim eventually fell off the side of the truck, and received several injuries. Witnesses on scene confirmed the victim’s story and was transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Video surveillance from inside the store was reviewed and the amount of merchandise taken totaled approximately $150.

At approximately 10 a.m. on Nov. 21, deputies received a call from a neighboring agency that the truck had been located on Boundary Cone Road.

Hernandez and a male subject had been detained. Hernandez allegedly admitted to removing the items from the store, but didn’t know anyone was holding onto her truck.

Resisting arrest, shoplifting

After multiple tased attempts, Brandalyn Wynn Kunkle, 37 of Bullhead City, was arrested at approximately 8:45 p.m. Nov. 22 in the 5200 block of Highway 95 in reference to a shoplifting.

Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies were contacted by the assistant manager of the store and the manager advised deputies that they observed a female subject, later identified as Kunkle, remove items from a shelf and then enter the restroom of the business.

The manager entered the restroom and heard the packaging being removed, and after Kunkle exited, the manager found the packaging without the merchandise. Kunkle then exited the store and went to a vehicle in the parking lot then returned inside.

Deputies made contact with Kunkle inside the store, when she placed her hands in front of her body and stated to “arrest her” and that she was a “shoplifter.”

When deputies advised Kunkle she was under arrest and attempted to detain her, Kunkle became non-compliant and began screaming at deputies.

As deputies attempted to detain Kunkle, she continued to scream, pull away from deputies and rotate her body in an attempt to free herself.

Deputies then placed Kunkle on the ground, where she continued to roll around, preventing deputies from placing her in handcuffs. A civilian stepped in and attempted to assist the deputy.

Deputies advised Kunkle she would be tased if she continued, when she rolled onto her stomach and locked her hands underneath her body. Kunkle was tased, but continued to resist.

The taser was deployed again, and Kunkle continued to resist, this time grabbing the deputy’s taser. A Kingman Police Department officer then jumped in to assist, and a third taser deployment was successful in placing Kunkle in restraints.

Once in custody, Kunkle admitted to removing the items without paying, with an approximate value of $50.

Brandalyn Wynn Kunkle was arrested for felony resisting arrest and misdemeanor shoplifting. Kunkle was taken to Mohave County Jail without further incident.
