YCSO Deputies Looking For Three Men In Connection With A Vehicular Assault Of A Horse Sunday In Prescott

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials are looking for three men in connection with a vehicular assault of a horse in Prescott Sunday. Officials say at around 12:43 p.m., deputies responded to a call on the Granite Mountain Trailhead from two people who reported that an unidentified driver endangered their lives and injured their horse. The two victims reported that three male riders ended their ride and headed back to their truck and horse trailer. While the men were at their truck and trailer, one of them shouted at the two victims, that they “could have parked in a better location to allow for others to park.” According to the victims, both sets of trucks and trailers were parked on almost opposite ends of the half-acre parcel. The unidentified driver then accelerated his vehicle, with its horse trailer in tow, and drove at a high rate of speed and continued to circle the victims and their vehicles quickly and aggressively. As the suspect driver came around the passenger side of the victim’s horse trailer, his truck or trailer made impact with the mounted rider causing injury to the horse. The driver then sped off out of the Williamson Valley Trailhead in an unknown direction. A veterinarian was called to the scene to treat the wounded horse. The unidentified males are described as a stocky 50-to-60-year-old and a muscular 15-to-22-year-old, who was wearing a black sleeveless shirt. The third male is also between 15-and-22 years old The suspect vehicle is described as a newer white Ford F250 four-door pickup with a matching white topper.
