The male victim was sleeping when Voyles came and began punching him on the head and face. Officers didn't see any redness in those areas. She tried coming at him again but he pushed her away.

He got up and in anger went to the kitchen and pushed her work computer and monitors off the counter causing them to break. Voyles went into an office and threw the male victim's things around. While she threw things, an object hit his middle toe, which was covered in fresh blood. 

He told Voyles he called the police, which caused her to stop throwing things. Officers saw what looked like scratch marks on the male victim's neck that were fresh, had blood and the area surrounding it was still red. He stated Voyles did it to him but didn't say when it happened.

Voyles was cited and booked into the Pinal County Jail in the city of Florence.

On May 29, 2021, Alesha J Aguilar was arrested on Cobblestone Farms and Struebing for criminal damage and failure to give information. She crashed into a residence and left the scene without contacting the homeowners. Her and her passenger eluded the MPD. An officer found them trying to get into their home in the same area as the accident. 

Aguilar immediately put up her hands and said she messed up and didn't want to go to jail. The Maricopa Fire/Rescue came to assess their injuries. Afterwards, Aguilar was placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI. 

An officer submitted a misdemeanor charge for criminal damage but was advised to resubmit it with a felony criminal damage charge because the damage was over $1,000 in repairs and extensive damage to the home. The balcony was deemed unsafe and the vehicle had to stay put otherwise the balcony would collapse. The brick wall was damaged as well.
