Officers returned to the 3600 block of Masonic Drive and contacted the complainant, who reported that he had been standing on the parking lot of a restaurant when he was approached by the suspect. The complainant said the suspect ran up to him without warning and threw a bundle of books (about 30) at him. The complainant was able to avoid being struck by the thrown books, and said the suspect then cursed at him and ran down the street toward Texas Ave.
Officers knew that there was a book store nearby, on Worley Drive, and went to the store to check it. They found a shed behind the book store that was open and contained books in bundles like the one the suspect had thrown. The suspect later admitted entering the shed and taken items from within.
The suspect, Robert Fink, 53, was charged with Disturbing the Peace by Public Intoxication, Resisting an Officer, Aggravated Assault, and Simple Burglary. He was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.
