On Sunday, February 21, at 5:32 PM, Prescott Valley Police responded to the 1000 block of North Rusty Nail Drive due to a physical domestic violence incident in progress. Upon scene officers learned the suspect was 22-year-old Caleb Rose of Prescott Valley. Rose was still in the residence with two victims. Officers learned Rose had assaulted a family member causing injuries and threatened the family member with a gun. The victims were able to escape with the assistance of dispatchers at Prescott Regional Communications Center (PRCC) and officers on scene.
Officers surrounded the residence and announced for Rose to exit the house. Rose ignored the officers’ commands at which time he ignited a homemade bomb in the garage. Rose then attempted to escape by backing his mother’s vehicle through the garage door and fleeing the location at a high rate of speed. Rose crashed the vehicle into a tree near Cloud Cliff Pass and Old Black Canyon Highway. Rose exited the vehicle and fled on foot. The crashed vehicle caught on fire due to the impact.
With the assistance of a witness, officers located Rose and attempted to take him into custody. Rose refused to comply and moved aggressively toward the officers. A Police K9 assisted in taking Rose into custody.
The woman who was assaulted was treated at Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) for non-life-threatening injuries. Officers were also treated at YRMC for exposure to hazardous fumes from the bomb.
Rose was treated for his injuries and booked into Yavapai County Jail on numerous charges including Aggravated Assault per DV, Criminal Damage per DV, Disorderly Conduct per DV, Unlawful Flight from Law Enforcement, Aggravated Assault upon Law Enforcement, Arson, Possession of a Weapon by a Prohibited Possessor and other charges.
