A Bullhead City man faces aggravated assault and disorderly conduct charges for allegedly beating another man who had tried to break up a fight at a friend’s residence in the 2000 block of Gregg Cove.
Police say that Steven Michael Martinez, 33, was in the midst of an argument with his girlfriend when the victim tried to intervene. Martinez reportedly didn’t take too kindly to the gesture and, according police department spokesperson Emily Fromelt, began to assault the victim once he tried to break in between the couple’s argument.
After the assault, the victim left the residence and called police from a convenience store on Marina Blvd. Paramedics later transported him to WARMC for treatment.
Officers questioned Martinez about the incident and arrested him without incident. Fromelt said that Martinez was charged with aggravated assault due to the severity of the injuries inflicted on the victim. He was booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman.
