“He wanted to prove a point that he could actually shut down the police department,” police Lt. Paul Hammer said.
The attack, which resulted in damage to the vehicles, occurred in the Chinatown section of the Pennsylvania city.
The report says that the suspect arrived at the police station at about 5:15 am EST and began swinging an archaeology hammer at the vehicles and the station’s front door.
“We heard the sound of breaking glass,” Hammer said. “We went out to investigate to see what was going on and I observed a male in his boxers with a hammer in his hand. By the time we had got to the corner, he had already broken multiple windows and he had been apprehended by one of our other officers.”
The 31-year-old suspect may face felony criminal mischief charges.
Tupac Shakur was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996. His murder remains unsolved.
