Mr. Frank Pratt was beaten on December 25rd, and the case has been open for two weeks now. As of Tuesday police made an arrest for a "person on interest" in the case. Hilyard Bardney Scott, age 34 was arrested on a separate warrant, but is being questioned in this beating.
"Daniel said Scott was arrested on a warrant for a Dec. 23 beating where "some of the characteristics are similar in nature to what happened in the Pratt case." That incident occurred within a half mile of Pratt's pool business, where he was attacked on Christmas day, but Daniel had no further details.
Casa Grande detectives were in Phoenix Tuesday afternoon to question Scott regarding both cases."
