Police Searching for Suspect and Vehicle

On December, 25 at about 2015 hours, Frank Pratt was found by his wife at his business, Pratt Pools, in the 100 block of W. Cottonwood Lane, Casa Grande. Mr. Pratt had gone to the business about 1600 hours earlier in the day to check on it when he was confronted by a subject already inside the building who severely beat him, knocked him unconscious, and left him bound inside the building.

That subject stole Mr. Pratt's vehicle and left the area. There is no further description of this subject.

Mr. Pratt was treated by Casa Grande Fire and was flown to a Phoenix area hospital where he is in stable condition with multiple bruises/contusions and at least one fracture.

Mr. Pratt is the elected Representative in District 23 of the Arizona House of Representatives.

The Casa Grande Police Department is seeking the public's help in locating Mr. Pratt's vehicle, a gold 2007 GMC Yukon with Az plate 815-KYJ. If the vehicle is found, please call 911 and report it to the nearest law enforcement agency.

Anyone having further information about this crime is asked to contact the Casa Grande Police Department.
