Beem charged in assault, weapons offense

MOHAVE VALLEY – A Mohave Valley man who allegedly threatened and assaulted a Fort Mohave woman was arrested last Sunday. Mohave County sheriff’s deputies first responded at 7:15 a.m. to a report of a disturbance at a home in the 1900 block of La Riata Road.

Agency spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said the alleged victim told arriving deputies that Keith Beem, 47, had broken into the residence and assaulted her before fleeing in a Nissan Sentra.

“The victim further advised that on a previous day, Beem had slashed her tires, brandished a firearm and made threats directed toward her,” Mortensen said. She said deputies the suspect vehicle was the focus of a high-risk traffic stop conducted in the 1600 block of Vista.

“A search of the vehicle revealed a 9mm handgun in the center console,” Mortensen said. “A records check revealed Beem to be a prohibited weapons possessor.”

Mortensen said several composition style notebooks containing vulgar and threatening comments about the victim were confiscated from the trunk of the suspect vehicle. Beem was arrested and booked into jail for trespassing, criminal damage, unlawful flight and weapons offenses.
