According to Tucson Police Department, on July 14, 2013, officers from Operations Division West responded to a report of a fight at the Seasons Apartment Complex located at 811 East Wetmore Road. Upon arrival, the officers located signs of a recent party but no active fighting. No victims or witnesses to a fight were located and no one at the apartment complex reported seeing or hearing a fight.

Approximately ninety minutes later, two victims, who reportedly had been involved in a fight, arrived at a local area hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

One victim suffered a broken jaw and the other victim had a broken nose and dislocated hip. Per their standard protocol, hospital staff notified the Tucson Police Department and an officer responded to the hospital. Upon arrival, the officer connected the victims to the earlier fight call at 811 East Wetmore Road.

The victims, whom are both black males, made allegations that the assault upon them was racially motivated.

The Aggravated Assault Unit responded to continue the investigation. Detectives aggressively investigated the incident over a period of two and a half weeks, identifying some of those involved in the assault as well as witnesses who were also present at the party when the incident occurred.

Due to the possibility that the incident was racially motivated, federal authorities were consulted as this complex investigation unfolded.

On August 2, 2013, detectives arrested 21-year old Robert Henkel and 21-year old Taylor Ray in connection with this incident. Both were booked into the Pima County Jail for two counts each of Aggravated Assault.

Booking photographs are not yet available. The investigation into this incident is ongoing and the Tucson Police Department is asking anyone with information to contact 911 or 88-CRIME.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
