KINGMAN – Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Carl Mark Miller, 60 of Kingman, for Aggravated Assault and Resisting Arrest, both felonies.

On August 6, 2019, deputies responded to a residence in the 2000 block of Butler Ave. in reference to an assault. Deputies arrived on scene and the victim advised that a male subject, known to her as Miller, had attempted to enter her house by force. The victim had pushed Miller away and told him to leave when Miller assaulted her by placing her in a choke hold to restrict her breathing. A family member was able to remove Miller from choking the victim and allowed the victim to lock herself inside the residence.

Deputies responded to Miller’s residence, but were unable to make contact. 

On August 8, 2109, deputies received a call that Miller was at the residence and responded. Upon arrival, deputies observed Miller and a female subject sitting on the front porch and advised Miller they needed to speak to him. Miller began yelling at deputies when the female subject opened the gate for them to enter. Miller then ran inside the residence and locked the door.

Deputies began giving verbal commands for Miller to open the door, when the female subject advised deputies that her grandchild was inside the residence and she was concerned Miller would hurt the child. With the safety of the child at risk, deputies decided to force entry into the residence and pried the door open. Upon entry, the child was located unharmed and removed from the residence.

Miller had locked himself inside a bedroom and was given verbal commands to exit the room. Miller refused and deputies kicked the door open, only to find Miller had then locked himself inside the bathroom. The bathroom door was kicked open and Miller began advancing towards deputies. Verbal commands were given to stop and Miller ignored the commands, continuing to advance. Deputies were able to place Miller on the ground, where he proceeded to tuck his hands under his body. A struggle ensued and deputies were eventually able to place Miller in restraints.

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