CAMP VERDE – The Camp Verde Marshal’s Office arrested 24-year-old Everardo Guzman on allegations of aggravated assault and failure to obey a court order.

At about 11 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 23, Guzman, a resident of Camp Verde, allegedly stabbed a 21-year-old woman in the leg and the groin area, according to a statement released by Marshal’s Spokesperson Darby Martin.

The press release stated that the victim, whose name has not been released by the Marshal’s Office, had showed up at Verde Valley Medical Center “in a personal vehicle” stating she had gotten into a fight.

The incident occurred on Cripple Creek Drive in Camp Verde’s Verde Lakes community, Camp Verde Marshal Corey Rowley said.

The victim suffered “non-life threatening” injuries, Rowley said, and was flown to a Phoenix hospital for further medical treatment.
