Safety First

Be Aware | Be Careful | Be Safe

A REALTOR® in Tucson was attacked at an open house on Saturday, October 8. The perpetrator, named Donasti Davonsiea, also known as Juan Nunley Jr., committed kidnapping and assault with a weapon, and is still on the loose.

Recently, the broker of the attacked REALTOR® contacted Arizona REALTORS® to advise them that detectives were notified by at least three (3) additional agents who have had encounters with Davonsiea. The detectives further believe that he may have fled to other areas in the state besides Southern Arizona.

Please be cautious and on alert. Davonsiea is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Davonsiea is 37 years old and described as 5 feet and 9 inches and 150 pounds. He’s bald, has hazel eyes and several tattoos on his arms, chest, and neck. The Tucson Police Department is actively searching for him. If you have any information, you are asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.

We encourage you to be vigilant about your safety protocols, especially when meeting new clients and showing open houses. Please do your best to meet clients for the first time at the office or other public location. Let someone know who you are meeting and where you are showing. When showing open houses, don’t host it alone, partner with another REALTOR®.

The National Association of REALTORS®, Arizona REALTORS®, and WeSERV have many resources for you. Please use what’s best for you and stay safe.
