Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Detectives arrested Robert John Vogt Jr., 44 of Golden Valley, for Attempted 1st Degree Murder, Endangerment, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Dangerous Drug Possession, and Drug Paraphernalia Possession, all felonies. On Sunday (6/14) at approximately 6:30 PM, deputies responded to the area of Bank St. and Jagerson Ave. for a reported weapons offense. Upon arrival, deputies were advised that a male subject, identified as Vogt, had shot two rounds into his brother’s vehicle that he had collided with. The victim advised he had been parked in front of a friend’s house when he observed Vogt’s vehicle coming toward his at a high rate of speed. The victim advised he sped off in an attempt to get away from Vogt, however Vogt followed him. The victim stopped due to traffic and Vogt collided into the back of his vehicle, then fired two rounds into the victim’s vehicle. The victim was able to continue on and get away from Vogt. Two female juveniles were inside the vehicle during the incident. One of the juveniles was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center for minor injuries sustained during the collision.

Vogt was contacted by deputies a short time later in his vehicle, which had damages consistent with the victim’s allegations. Deputies searched the vehicle and located a .22 revolver, methamphetamine, and a pipe. The bullet holes in the victim’s vehicle were consistent with the weapon located inside Vogt’s vehicle. The rounds that penetrated the vehicle were located on the driver’s side and the middle of the vehicle, barely missing where the juvenile girls were seated. Vogt denied any involvement in the firing of the weapon. Robert John Vogt Jr. was arrested and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility for the
above charges.
