KINGMAN – According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrested Frederick Regan Siegel, 60 of Kingman, for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, a felony.

On Tuesday, August 6, 2019 around 8:15 p.m., deputies responded to a residence in the 3100 block of E. Suffock Ave. in reference to an assault. Upon arrival, deputies observed the victim, a 39 year old male, lying on the ground in front of the residence.

Witnesses to the incident confirmed that a male subject, identified as Siegel, and the victim had been in a verbal altercation, as Siegel was not allowed on the property due to an Order of Protection. The victim advised that Siegel began reaching inside his truck for something and the victim began punching him, fearing he was reaching for a weapon.

Siegel then stepped on the gas pedal, accelerating the vehicle forward. This caused the vehicle to strike the victim and drag him down the street until the victim was able to get loose.

Deputies responded to Siegel’s residence and detained him for the assault. When asked, Siegel claimed he was being assaulted by the victim and was attempting to get away.

The victim was taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Siegel was arrested and booked into Mohave County Adult Detention Facility without incident.
