Victoria police have now identified the man who was seen swinging a baseball bat at multiple people and damaging property on Monday afternoon.
Shortly after 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 2, police were called to a multi-unit residential building in the 1000-block of Pandora Avenue for a report about a man with a weapon.
A witness told police that a man had attempted to enter a secure courtyard area. The witness confronted the man, who became irritated and began swinging a baseball bat at residents. The man hit the building with the bat multiple times and then threw the bat at another person, striking them, before leaving the scene. The person struck did not report any physical injuries.
The suspect is described as a 30- to 40-year-old Caucasian man, standing 6’ tall with a slim build. He has short, shaved hair and wore a large black jacket and brown pants. He was also carrying a black duffle bag.
Thanks to multiple tips from members of the community and partner agencies, police were able to identify the suspect. Investigators will seek a warrant for his arrest.
