PHOENIX, AZ—FBI Phoenix Division’s Special Agent in Charge (SAC) James L. Turgal Jr. and U.S. Marshal David Gonzales announced today that Noah Grant Jr. has been arrested in the vicinity of the 2200 block of W. Devonshire in Phoenix, Arizona without incident on charges of kidnapping and sexual assault.

On August 29, 2011 in Pinon, Arizona on the Navajo Indian Reservation, Grant allegedly kidnapped and sexually assaulted an adult female at knife point.

SAC James L. Turgal, Jr. stated, “Today’s arrest was the collaborative effort between the United States Marshals Service, El Mirage Police Department, and the FBI’s Fugitive Task Force, which is comprised of Mesa Police Department, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, and the Phoenix Police Department. Alleged crimes of violence such as this will not be tolerated and we will continue to work with our federal, state, local and tribal partners to ensure that our community remains safe.”

“Predators in our communities don’t stand a chance when agencies combine efforts towards a common goal,” stated U.S. Marshal David Gonzales. “We will continue to support our law enforcement partners in an effort to reduce violent crime.”

The criminal complaint regarding the above charges can be obtained via PACER.
