YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KSWT, KECY)- A Yuma inmate was sentenced Tuesday to four-and-a-half years after leading police on a chase in May.

Robert Marcus Cuen had pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated assault and attempted misconduct involving weapons.

Police arrested Cuen in March on four felony charges, including kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Officers said Cuen confronted a woman with a gun, then forced her into a car at gunpoint when police arrived. 

Police said 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 has faced a slew of drug possession charges.  He has also pleaded guilty to burglary charges, and to charges of selling stolen property.  

Cuen will remain in custody in Yuma as he awaits his other case that is pending.
