Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Mario Luis Aguado, 36 of St. George, UT, for felony
Criminal Damage, Disorderly Conduct, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, and Displaying False License
Plate, all misdemeanors. On Sunday (8/23) at approximately 5:55 AM, deputies responded to a business in
the 14000 block of Pierce Ferry Rd. for a report of a male subject chasing an employee with a knife. The
employee was able to lock himself inside the business, however the male subject continued to damage the
outside of the business. While responding to the scene, deputies received information that the male subject
had left in his vehicle headed south on Highway 93 towards Kingman. Deputies were given a very detailed
description of the vehicle, to include the fact that the vehicle was driving on a flat tire. A later call informed
deputies that the vehicle was spotted at approximately milepost 44 and the male subject was sitting in the
passenger seat of the vehicle. Deputies located and approached the vehicle and made contact with the male
subject, identified as Aguado, sitting in the passenger seat. When asked, Aguado denied driving the vehicle
or being at the business. Deputies advised they knew he was at the business, however Aguado continued to
deny involvement in the incident. Aguado was placed in restraints and detained.
Deputies responded back to the business to obtain a statement from the victim. The victim advised he had
been sitting on his dirt bike outside the business when the male subject entered the parking lot in his vehicle.
As the vehicle came towards him, the employee had to jump off the dirt bike and out of the way before
Aguado ran into the dirt bike. The victim then alleged that Aguado exited the vehicle and began chasing him
around the parking lot. At one point, the victim picked up a rock and threw it at Aguado, striking him in the
face. Deputies observed several gashes and scratches to the asphalt of the parking lot due to the vehicle’s
blown tire. Mario Luis Aguado was arrested and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility
without further incident.



On Monday (8/24) at approximately 4 PM, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the
Mohave County Adult Detention Facility for a report of an assault on a detention officer. Upon arrival,
deputies learned the officer was taken to the hospital for routine evaluation. Deputies made contact with the
inmate, identified as Joseph Anthony Anderson, 36 of Los Angeles, CA, who refused to answer questions or
make a statement regarding the incident. Deputies then responded to the hospital to make contact with the
detention officer, who advised Inmate Anderson was in the area of the wall-mounted phone when he was
directed to go back to his cell. Inmate Anderson ignored directives and was hitting the wall mounted phone
with the handset piece. The officer again gave verbal directives for Inmate Anderson to return to his cell and
then attempted to physically direct the inmate towards his cell. Inmate Anderson then attacked the officer,
striking him in the head and face multiple times. The Officer advised he was able to gain control of
Anderson’s hands until backup officers arrived to detain him. The Detention Officer was treated for injuries
received during the incident and released. Joseph Anthony Anderson was charged with felony Aggravated
Assault on an Officer.



Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Christopher John Mauch, 29 of Fort Mohave, for felony
Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon per Domestic Violence, Threatening/ Intimidating, and Disorderly
Conduct, both misdemeanors. On Tuesday (8/25) at approximately 9:30 PM, deputies responded to a
disturbance call at an apartment complex in the 4100 block of S. Lynn Dr. Multiple reporting parties advised
that neighbors were outside yelling and fighting. When deputies arrived on scene, they observed no obvious
signs of a disturbance outside. Deputies made contact with the female victim and a witness, who advised
they had been drinking with the male subject, Mauch, who became belligerent when the female asked him to
stop drinking. The victim then claimed that Mauch retrieved a knife and held the victim against the wall while
he held the knife to her neck. The victim then alleged that Mauch put down the knife and grabbed a
handgun, holding it to her head and then in her mouth. During the incident Mauch put the weapon down, and
the victim was able to exit the apartment without further injury.
Deputies attempted to make contact with Mauch at his apartment, but were unsuccessful. Attempts to call
Mauch on the phone and over loud speakers went unanswered, so Mohave County Sheriff’s Office SWAT
was activated and responded to the scene. Once SWAT arrived, more attempts to get Mauch to exit the
apartment via loud speaker were unsuccessful. A search warrant was obtained and a distraction device and
chemical agents were introduced into the apartment. A short time later Mauch exited the apartment and was
taken into custody without incident. When asked about the incident, Mauch admitted to drinking alcohol most
of the day and did not remember much of what happened. Christopher John Mauch was arrested and
transported to the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in Kingman.
