Prescott Police went to the home in the 600 block of Lincoln Avenue and took Alvarez into custody without incident.

The victim gathered her two children and drove to find him. When she found Alvarez, in the 200 block of East Road 1 North, he went to the window and began choking her. She started to roll up the window when he struck and broke it and then continued choking her from outside the vehicle. Her two kids were sitting in the backseat at the time. During the attack, the victim’s head ended up under the steering wheel next to the brake pedal and her feet on the driver’s seat.
