After a brick was found lodged in the broken glass of Senator Mark Warner’s office building door the authorities apprehended the man that they believe is responsible for the damage and he is facing felony charges.

On Monday morning before business hours, someone broke the glass on the front door to the Roanoke, Virginia, office of United States Senator Mark Warner. None of the employees had arrived yet when the incident occurred, and upon its discovery, the vandalism was reported to the police.

Before they were told of the brick that had smashed the senator’s door, the police had received notification around 7:30 am alerting them of a man that had been seen walking around in the downtown area carrying bricks, but they were not able to find the person right away when they searched for him.

A 36 year old man named Scott Patrick Cole of Newport Beach was booked into Orange County Jail on the suspicion of battery with serious bodily injury, trespassing, causing harm to an elder/dependent adult, and assault with a deadly weapon.

At around 4:30 p.m. officers got an assault call to the 800 block of West 15th St. After the officers arrived, they had made contact with a man, who fled to a nearby neighbor’s house for safety, said Jennifer Manzella, a Newport Beach police spokeswoman.

The unidentified victim was then taken to a nearby hospital for non-life threatening injuries and was later released. Apparently, the victim and Cole were acquainted, Manzella said. The officers were trying to contact Cole at the residence where the assault had allegedly taken place, but Cole repeatedly refused to come to the front door, said Manzella, adding that Cole seemed extremely agitated and began breaking windows and throwing objects inside the victim’s home.
