PHOENIX — A woman was killed in Peoria on Monday night when she got hit by a vehicle after being assaulted by a man who fled the scene but was later arrested, authorities said.

Katrinna Gutierrez and the man were arguing on the sidewalk at 75th Avenue and Golden Lane, south of Olive Avenue, when he assaulted her, the Peoria Police Department said.

Gutierrez, a 30-year-old Avondale resident, was left lying in the roadway. She then was struck by a vehicle heading south on 75th Avenue, police said.

First responders performed life-saving measures, but Gutierrez did not survive her injuries.

The driver remained at the scene, but the man who assaulted Gutierrez left the area before police arrived.

Around 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, 30-year-old Lorenzo Colorado was arrested in Goodyear without incident. Police said he would be booked into jail on counts of second-degree murder, manslaughter, endangerment and assault.

Police didn’t say how they connected Colorado to the case.

There was no indication the driver was impaired or speeding, police said.
