The suspect who was Day 17 of Yavapai Silent Witness’ “Catch 22” program has been arrested. Back on July 9th, 2020 26-year-old Justin Emans was at a home in the 100-block of North Alarcon. He became angry at a woman because she had hidden his glass meth bong. He grabbed the woman by her throat and choked her, restricting her breathing. He then released her and went outside. The victim got the bong, broke it and handed it to him. Emans threw the bag containing the broken glass at her, striking the victim in her upper arm, cutting her. She later needed stitches for the wound. Emans was arrested and convicted on aggravated assault and disorderly conduct and was sentenced to probation, which he violated. On October 19th, Yavapai County Sheriff Deputies responded to a family fight call in the 29-hundred block of Indian Wells Drive in Prescott Valley. Deputies met a female victim outside of her home where she told them she had been assaulted by a man who tackled her in front of the house and was now hiding inside. Deputies found Emans hiding under clothes in the laundry room, armed with a rifle. He was arrested on the probation violation warrant and was also charged with two counts of aggravated domestic violence and a charge of weapons misconduct for possession of a firearm. He is currently in the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde.
