LOCATION: Acoma Trail/ Onaga Trail, Yucca Valley
SUSPECT(S): Bryan Taylor, 37 years old, resident of Michigan
SUMMARY: On October 9, 2018, at about 10:12 a.m. Deputies conducted a pedestrian check of a subject matching the description of a suspect wanted in connection with an attempted kidnapping from the 7600 Block of Acoma Trail in the Town of Yucca Valley on September 18, 2018. The suspect, later identified as Bryan Taylor, was also wanted for absconding from parole from the State of Michigan. During the contact, Taylor assaulted the deputy prior to fleeing on foot. During the foot chase, the pursuing deputy was bitten by a dog on his leg and received lacerations to his hands as a result of injuries caused by chain link fencing. Deputies established a perimeter in the area where Taylor had fled and Sheriff’s Aviation responded to search for the suspect. During the search, deputies heard residents screaming for help inside of a home in the 56000 Block of Navajo Trail. Taylor had entered the occupied home through an unlocked door and was hiding inside when he was discovered by the residents. Taylor immediately fled from the rear of the home, running from deputies in the backyards of several residences. Sheriff’s Aviation arrived on scene and Taylor attempted to conceal himself underneath a vehicle in the backyard of a home in the 56000 Block of Taos Trail. Taylor was located underneath the vehicle by deputies and taken into custody without incident. Taylor was found to be in possession of methamphetamine. The deputy was treated for his injuries at High Desert Medical Center and later released.
Taylor was arrested for resisting an executive officer and booked at the Morongo Basin Jail, bail $50,000.00. Taylor was booked for attempt kidnapping and booked into the Morong Basin Jail, bail $250,000.00, in additional to the Michigan State parole violation.
