Man uses chunk of wood to bash police car

A 55-year-old man who slammed a chunk of wood against an Abbotsford Police car Sunday night is now facing charges of mischief, uttering threats and assault.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the incident took place at about 5:20 p.m. in the 2400 block of Center Street after police received a call from a woman who said a rock had been thrown through her window.

She saw the culprit walking away and provided a description, including that he was carrying a piece of wood that was about four feet long and two feet in diameter.

When an officer who arrived on the scene tried to get the man to put down the piece of wood, he instead waved it at the officer and then slammed it against a patrol car. The front of the vehicle was damaged and a headlight broken.

The man was arrested after he either threw the wood or it slipped out of his hands, MacDonald said.
