Cottonwood AZ (January 10, 2021) – It’s day 10 of Yavapai Silent Witness’ CATCH 22 Program. Today Yavapai County Law Enforcement is asking for your help in locating fugitive Thomas Flores Lopez. On August 6, 2016, Lopez went to the residence where his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend were staying in the 1600 block of East Franquero Lane in Cottonwood. After being refused entry by the victims, Lopez was able to enter the home by climbing through a window. The male victim locked himself in a room while the female victim locked herself in a bathroom.
Lopez tried to kick in the bathroom door when the victim finally opened it. Lopez then assaulted the victim by pulling her through the house and pushing her into a shelf causing injury to her hand. The victim was able to get Lopez outside to protect her small child who was asleep on the couch near where the assault was occurring. After going outside, Lopez broke the front door to the residence.
Lopez was charged with Criminal Trespass in the 1st Degree, Aggravated Assault, two counts of Disorderly Conduct, and Criminal Damage. Lopez was convicted and was given probation as a part of his sentence. He has now violated his probation.
Lopez has a nationwide extraditable warrant with a $20,000 bond. He is described as a 30-year-old Hispanic male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He has multiple tattoos to include what appears to be a Chinese symbol on his neck and a “480”, on his hand. His last known address is on Longstreet Avenue Bronx, NY, but he also has ties to the Camp Verde and Mesa, Arizona Areas.
Anyone providing information leading to Lopez’s arrest could be eligible for a $500 cash reward. To earn the reward, you must call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip at yavapaisw.com. All tips are always anonymous. You never have to give your name.
