Suspect wanted for kidnapping, aggravated assault taken into custody

He was located in the Coolidge area, officials say.

COOLIDGE, Ariz. — The U.S. Marshals Service Task Force and Pinal County Sheriff's Office took Donald Hill into custody late Friday evening, officials said.

“The U.S. Marshals Task Force is dedicated to bringing together the resources of our federal, state and local partners to collectively work the most dangerous fugitive cases,” said Acting United States Marshal Van Bayless. “Donald Hill terrorized a neighborhood but was safely apprehended and won’t be doing it anytime soon”. 

Hill, 45, was wanted on five counts of kidnapping and five counts of aggravated assault, according to the U.S. Marshals. He was located in the Coolidge area and was booked into the Pinal County Jail.

Hill was seen in the neighborhood near 10th Street and Vah Ki Inn on Thursday, but evaded capture until Friday evening, the U.S. Marshals said.  Area schools were placed under lockdown earlier Thursday while officials searched the area.
