Prescott AZ (January 13, 2021) – It’s day 13 of Yavapai Silent Witness’ CATCH 22 Program. Today Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your help in locating fugitive Aron Jose Bermudez-Felix.
On August 6, 2018, Bermudez got into an argument with the victim, his girlfriend. Bermudez then slapped the victim and struck her with a closed fist in the face. He then threw the victim on the bed while she held their 1-year-old baby. Bermudez then threw the victim on the ground and kicked her in the ribs. The victim began to scream for help and Bermudez started strangling her to keep her quiet. He also stuffed a sock in her mouth to get her to stop screaming.
The victim was able to escape and get to a friend’s residence, but Bermudez was there waiting for her when she arrived. He grabbed the victim by her arm and shoulders and attempted to make the victim leave with him. When a witness began to call the police, Bermudez fled.
After multiple attempts on October 27, 2018, a YCSO deputy located Bermudez and arrested him. He was charged with Aggravated Assault, 2 counts of Disorderly Conduct, and Endangerment (to his child). He was later convicted and has violated his probation.
Bermudez currently has a Nationwide extraditable Probation Violation Warrant. He is described as a 23-year-old white male, 5 feet 7 inches tall, 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has tattoos on his right forearm. His last known address was in the 3600 block of East Maricopa in Cottonwood.
