On Wednesday night, July 9th, a police officer on the night shift found damage done to a fleet vehicle.

Surveillance video revealed a male leaving his Audi sedan and vandalizing the police SUV with a golf club, causing approximately $1400 worth of damage.

After further investigating, police identified Julio A. Bermudez of Central Falls as the assailant, who has a warrant out for his arrest from a previous offense.

The suspect was located shortly after and charged with vandalism and malicious injury to property.

Bermudez stayed overnight in jail until his arraignment this morning, where he was also held as a violator for previous offenses. 

His violation hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, July 23rd.
