PHOENIX (AP) — A man suspected of assaulting a woman has been arrested after evading Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies in Litchfield Park.
They say 24-year-old Devante Snead has been booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault, kidnapping, sexual assault, theft of means of transportation, unlawful flight from law enforcement and criminal damage charges.
A woman says she was in her vehicle Wednesday afternoon with her Snead and was trying to break up with him.
She says Snead became violent and allegedly struck her in the face and held a knife to her throat.
The woman was able to contact the sheriff's office and give authorities a description of Snead and his vehicle.
Deputies located the vehicle in a business parking lot and the pursuit ended when Snead's car crashed into a fence.
