After investigators watched surveillance videos from businesses in the area, the suspect was identified as Daniel Sanchez, 27, of Flagstaff.

"Mr. Sanchez was contacted by telephone and indicated he is currently located in Mexico. An arrest warrant for Mr. Sanchez has been issued," the department said.

He is accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon  and attempted homicide.
