The individual, 42-year-old Jeffrey Schomer, had fresh lacerations to his upper body, and left arm.  While the first officer spoke with Schomer, the officer at the business advised of a glass break. Along with the broken window, additional items were found in the Bistro linked to Schomer. 

Schomer was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on one count of 3rd degree Burglary. He remains in custody with no bond. Schomer’s next court appearance is April 6, 2020.
