On 8/13/2011 at approximately 8:30 Pm, officers responded to 15525 N Thompson Peak (Aquatic Center Skate Park) in reference to a fight. Witnesses reported that a group of juvenile males were fighting and an adult male became involved who reportedly assaulted one of the minors.
Officers arrived and were told by witnesses that the adult male suspect had left. They found a 15 yr old juvenile had suffered a facial injury from being punched. The juvenile victim reported that he was fighting with other juveniles when an adult male aggressively ran at him and punched him in the face. The male was yelling and struck him in the head at least one more time before he was able to get away from the attacker. He believes that adult suspect was the father of one of the kids involved in the fight. The victim sustained facial injuries that required medical treatment.
After interviewing numerous witnesses, officers confirmed the victim’s account of the incident. The suspect was identified as KELVIN WAYNE JARREL, a 49yr old Cave Creek resident.
The following day, officers contacted the suspect at his residence. The suspect told them that he was in the parking lot of the skate park when he observed a fight break out involving his son. He ran to intervene and “shoved” a male that was fighting with his son. He said that he had no other contact with the male.
JARREL was placed under arrest for Aggravated Assault of a Minor and Disorderly Conduct. He was booked into Scottsdale City Jail. Charges are pending.
