A 41-year-old Apache Junction man was arrested and booked into the Pinal County Sheriff’s Detention Center on two counts of aggravated assault, one count of kidnapping and one count of threatening and intimidating.
Apache Junction police officers responded to a domestic violence call at about 8:30 a.m. Oct. 16 at a mobile home in the 2000 block of South Cortez Road.
“When officers arrived, a female victim was yelling from inside the residence that she was being held against her will. The officers on scene were able to subsequently negotiate her safe release. The victim was then transported to Banner Goldfield Medical Center for medical evaluation,” Cpl. Marshall Harshman, AJPD’s community and media liaison officer, said.
“The suspect, 41-year-old Trevor Hayden Bryant, locked himself in the bathroom area and refused to submit to police requests to come out. After several hours of attempted negotiations for him to comply was unsuccessful, the Apache Junction Police Department’s Special Weapons and Tactics team was deployed and took Bryant into custody without further incident or injuries,” Cpl. Harshman said.
Mr. Bryant is being held on a $50,000 secured bond.
The public is advised that all suspects are considered innocent until proven otherwise in a court of law, AJPD said.
