HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police say a Connecticut man charged with throwing a brick through the window of a police car, narrowly missing an officer’s head, said he did it because he “hates cops.”
Devon Adams-Almstad was charged with first-degree criminal mischief, assault on police, hate crime and other offenses for allegedly throwing the brick at the Hartford police cruiser just after 9 p.m. Monday.
The unnamed officer was cut with flying glass, but declined medical attention.
Assistant Chief Rafael Medina says Adams-Almstad, who is white, said he “hates cops and was targeting a white cop due to recent events in the news.”
The 20-year-old Hartford man was held on $100,000 bail. The case was not yet listed in online court records and it could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer
