BULLHEAD CITY - A Bullhead City man was arrested on Saturday, Feb. 2 for a Jan. 25 violence spree in Mohave Valley.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s office said Blake Larue, 32, broke a window to gain entry into a home in the 5600 block of S. Antelope Dr. where he confronted a woman who had an Order of Protection prohibiting contact.

“Larue allegedly entered the bedroom where the female victim was sleeping, grabbed her by the hair, and dragged her from the house,” said agency spokeswoman Anita Mortensen. “The female victim showed deputies large amounts of hair and an irritated scalp where the hair had been ripped out.”

Mortensen said a male in the home punched Larue to set the woman free. Larue fled the scene but was located and arrested eight days later.

Larue was jailed for seven counts of aggravated assault, two counts of criminal trespassing, aggravated harassment, all felonies, and misdemeanor criminal damage, disorderly conduct and failure to comply with a court order charges.
