Yuma shooting suspects have long criminal histories

Court records show, both suspects in Friday morning’s shooting in Yuma have histories of run-ins with the law.

Yuma Police are currently looking for Robert Cuen and Johnathan Magarelli in connection with 4:30 a.m. shooting in the 1100 block of South 9th Avenue.

The incident sent a 25-year-old man to the hospital with a gun shot wound. His injuries were not life-threatening.

Most recently, police arrested Cuen in March on four felony charges, including kidnapping and aggravated assault. Officers say Cuen confronted a woman with a gun, then forced her into a car at gunpoint when police arrived. They say he then led them on a brief chase with the victim in the car.

Court records show Cuen’s legal troubles date back to 2005. In the past he’s faced a slew of drug possession charges. He’s also pleaded guilty to burglary charges, and to charges of selling stolen property.

Court records show Margarelli’s criminal history dates back to 2008. It includes multiple drug convictions. He’s also faced stolen property charges, and in 2014 he pleaded guilty to car theft.

As of Friday evening, both men remain at large. Anyone with information on either Cuen or Magarelli is urged to contact Yuma Police at (928)783-4421. To remain anonymous you can contact 78-CRIME.
