crime scene notice

BULLHEAD CITY – Bullhead City Police are investigating an aggravated assault and criminal damage incident at the Mohave County Republican Central Committee headquarters that occurred Thursday night.

According to Bullhead City Police, at about 7:20 p.m., police were called to 1185 Hancock Rd. for a report of a weapons offense.

“At this time, police do not know what caused the damage to the glass window; however, it is NOT believed to be caused by a firearm,” stated Bullhead Police Public Information Officer Emily Fromelt in an email. “Six people were inside the building at the time. No one was injured. No suspects have been identified. No one was seen in the area or fleeing.”

The case is still under investigation, according to Fromelt.

Bullhead City Police ask anyone who has any information about the alleged assault to call BHCPD at (928) 763-1999.

“Last night, there was an unmistakable attack on a clearly marked local Republican office in Bullhead City, Arizona, when our volunteers – several of whom have military backgrounds – heard a gunshot shatter a window near the front door,” said Republican Party of Arizona Chairwoman Kelli Ward in a press release. “Thankfully, no one was hurt. After recent horrendous attacks against supporters of President Trump in Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and now here, enough is enough. Americans should not have to live in fear that expressing their political beliefs will result in physical harm or retaliation.”
