A man who allegedly expressed anger against his Home Owner's Association by wielding a hammer and two-by-four at a board member was arrested by police on Wednesday.
Suspect Wade Ang, 36, was angry with the Home Owner's Association for his townhouse complex because the association had not followed through with repairs to his unit on the 0 block of Royal Court Road, said police spokesperson Liz Wylie.
Ang approached one of the association's board members with a hammer and allegedly threatened him at around 8:30 a.m., Wylie said. The victim was able to get the hammer away from Ang and threw it in the bushes.
But Ang allegedly grabbed a wooden two-by-four and swung it at the victim. Ang then allegedly pushed the victim to the ground, and stood over him swinging, threatening the victim again, Wylie said. Construction workers, who saw the fight, were able to disarm Ang, and the victim called the police.
Police arrested Wade on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and battery.
