PHOENIX -- A wanted man who allegedly fled from a traffic stop in Black Canyon City last week has been arrested.

Dustin Bush, 30, of Cottonwood, was arrested in North Phoenix around 1 a.m. Thursday following an investigation by the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office and U.S. Marshals Service.

Authorities also arrested Colene Perkins, who was allegedly in the vehicle with Bush at the time of the traffic stop.

Bush was stopped by sheriff's deputies on Interstate 17 near Rock Springs Road before 5 a.m. Aug. 1.

He was wanted on robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault and endangerment charges resulting from an incident in Cottonwood in mid-July, according to the sheriff's office.

Bush and Perkins were apprehended without incident and booked into the Camp Verde Jail. His bond was set at $250,000 and hers at $20,000.
