SAFFORD – A woman who was involved in a domestic dispute with her live-in boyfriend was incarcerated after officers learned she had a warrant for her arrest.
Jessica Vohnel Boggs, 35, was arrested and booked into the Graham County Adult Detention Facility on June 6 for her warrant.
Officers were initially dispatched at about 9 a.m. to Boggs’ residence on 2nd Street after an anonymous party called Graham County Dispatch and reported hearing a man “abusing” a woman.
The man in question turned out to be Boggs’ live-in boyfriend, identified as Robert Martin, but he was not located at the scene.
Upon arrival, officers could hear Boggs yelling and managed to get her to unlock the gate and let them in. She advised that she had been in an altercation with Martin and that he had thrown a blanket at her, causing her to spill her coffee.
Boggs said she began yelling at Martin and sprayed him with water out of a squirt bottle. She said Martin then started to choke her before he fled the scene when officers arrived.
Officers noticed Boggs had a red mark around the front and side of her neck and that she had a small amount of blood on the edge of her mouth and a scrape on one of her knuckles.
At that time, County Dispatch advised of Boggs’ warrant and she was placed under arrest. The officer noted a report would be sent to the Graham County Attorney’s Office for review for possible charges against Martin, including assault/domestic violence and disorderly conduct/domestic violence. Additional charges may also be pending against Boggs, depending on the review.
As of the officer’s report, Martin had not been located.
