KINGMAN – The suspect involved in the armed robbery that resulted in an 80 year old being seriously injured on Wednesday, Jan. 23, has been captured in Henderson, Nevada.
Kingman detectives received information from San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department that a male subject had been captured and may be related to the armed robbery that occurred five days earlier.
The suspect, later identified as Joseph Berryhill, 34 of Phoenix, had committed a similar robbery in Needles, California just hours after the incident in Kingman.
