It’s day 16 of Yavapai Silent Witness’ Catch 22 Program. Today Yavapai County law enforcement is asking for the public’s help in locating Jonathan Sterling Mansfield.
Between Sept. 9 and Sept. 15, 2018, Mansfield stole a vehicle from U-Haul in Sedona. On Sept. 15, 2018, a Cottonwood Police officer located the U-Haul pickup pulling a trailer in the area of Main and Cochise streets in Cottonwood. The officer observed Mansfield, who was in the driver’s seat, hitting a female passenger in the head multiple times. The officer initiated a traffic stop, and Mansfield pulled the car to the right side of the road and stopped. Mansfield then got out of the vehicle and fled on foot. After a foot pursuit, Mansfield was taken into custody and charged with Auto Theft and Assault.
He was later placed on probation. He now has a nationwide extraditable Probation Violation warrant with no bond stemming from the above charges.
Mansfield is described as a 37-year-old white male, 6 feet, 170 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. His last known address was in Eastlake Ohio on Lakeshore Blvd.
