Deputies responded and located the female who said a male subject later identified as Joshua Aquino, 50 of Payette had tried to kill her. The suspect had left the area before deputies arrived and was later located in Weiser by a Weiser Police Officer. Weiser Police tried to stop the vehicle being driven by the suspect, Mr. Aquino.
