Chino Valley Man Arrested After He Stalked A Girl And Her Mom, And Tried To Hit The Mother With His Car

A Chino Valley man has been arrested for stalking a woman and her juvenile daughter last week. Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call at around 8:11 p.m. last Thursday saying 48-year-old Dustin Brown was waiting outside the home. Brown had previously been making inappropriate comments to the young woman at her work and had been avoiding service of an Injunction Against Harassment against him. He was also suspected of leaving a threatening letter on the victim’s car. Officials say Brown had previously done time in prison for stalking and was arrested two weeks ago by Prescott Police Department for a similar incident that began with him making inappropriate comments to a female employee at a different local business. When deputies arrived they saw a family member pinning Brown inside his car. After interviewing all parties involved, deputies were able to piece together that after locating Brown in the neighborhood, there was a confrontation between Brown and the victim’s mother. Brown revved his engine and began driving at the victim’s mother, which prompted another family member to drive his truck head-on into Brown’s car. A fight ensued inside the car until deputies and fire arrived on scene. Brown was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the fight. Once released from hospital care, deputies served him with an IAH and transported him to Verde Jail where he was booked on charges including stalking, harassment, disorderly conduct, assault, aggravated assault, and endangerment.
