Man Arrested for Assaulting Tow Truck Driver in Fremont

A 61-year-old man was apprehended by the Fremont Police Department last week after allegedly assaulting a tow truck driver at an apartment complex on Fremont Boulevard. The incident occurred on March 31 at approximately 5:10 p.m., as reported in a news release by the police department on Wednesday.

The victim, who had arrived at the complex to tow a vehicle parked in another resident’s designated space, was targeted by the suspect. The assailant struck the victim with a stick, brandished a firearm, and forcibly took the keys to the tow truck. Subsequently, the suspect fled the scene in his own car, leaving the victim with minor injuries to his face and arm.

Identified as a resident of the apartment complex, the suspect became the subject of an arrest warrant.

The suspect now faces charges of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm, and exhibiting a concealed firearm in public.

During a search of the suspect’s vehicle, authorities discovered a replica Glock BB gun. The suspect’s criminal history reveals prior arrests for assault with a deadly weapon, as well as convictions for carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle and willful discharge of a firearm in a negligent manner, according to the police.
