Man accused of assault, aggravated robbery and kidnapping against woman in Ogden
OGDEN, Utah — A man in Ogden was arrested Tuesday after allegedly attempting to rob, kidnap and assault a woman in the area.
Dayton Rogers, 23, is accused of attacking a 52-year-old woman who was trying to help him.
Police responded to 456 26th Street after receiving a report of a disturbance. According to a Facebook post by Ogden police, the victim noticed Rogers looked distressed. Police said the victim was trying to speak with Rogers from her car when Rogers entered the vehicle through the passenger door. At that point, police said, Rogers demanded that the woman drive him around and he allegedly threatened her with a gun if she didn’t follow his demands.
The victim, said police, tried to leave her vehicle, but Rogers restrained her. She attempted to flee a second time, according to police, and was successful. Rogers allegedly chased her and attempted to detain her again, said police, but she fought with Rogers until she was able to free herself. Once free, said police, she ran back to her vehicle and quickly left while Rogers fled the area on foot.
Officers located Rogers within minutes and arrested him on probable cause with multiple offenses. Rogers is currently booked into the Weber County Jail.
According to police, neither the victim nor Rogers were seriously injured during the incident.
Rogers has been known to use the alias Chase Farris.
