Man Goes On Smashing Rampage

A local man appeared to be taking lessons from The Incredible Hulk as he smashed multiple windows and attempted to break into at least four separate buildings in the North End and Millidgeville.

Sergeant Jay Henderson of the Saint John Police Force explains they first encountered the man in the Cranberry Hill area, where officers arriving on the scene watched him smash out a picture window and enter a home.

As officers placed him under arrest, more calls continue to come in about windows smashed at other homes in the area, and at UNB. The man was taken to hospital to be treated for cuts--and while there, managed to pull the fire alarm and smash a glass cabinet with a chair.

He also caused more damage in lockup. He's now facing charges of break and enter, mischief, damage, and failure to comply with conditions.
