OKLAHOMA CITY – A man has been arrested after allegedly throwing concrete blocks and large rocks at police vehicles for a third time.
“Hey! Get away from the police car. Get on the ground,” an officer yelled at 27-year-old Alfred Jabatty.
The incident happened back in February.
Body camera video shows Jabatty lying on the ground as the officer approaches moments after he threw a large rock at an Oklahoma City Police Department vehicle, smashing out the windows.
“I literally was just driving by and just watched him pick up that big old rock and just smash it out, man. Yeah, no, it’s done dude,” the officer who responded said to an officer who arrived moments later.
Turns out, this wasn’t a first for Jabatty. He was arrested for doing the same thing to a patrol unit with a concrete block back in 2015.
Now, there’s a third case that happened around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.
“An officer was walking out of headquarters. That’s when he saw a man who appeared to be vandalizing a scout car that was parked outside of headquarters. The man had thrown a concrete block through one of the windows and was attempting to get a concrete block through another window,” Officer Megan Morgan said.
Each time it happens, the patrol vehicle is either parked in front of OCPD headquarters or driving by.
“It’s been different officers each time. And each time, officers have approached him, at least in the most recent events, the suspect has given up and has been taken into custody peacefully,” Morgan said.
However, when the officers ask Jabatty why he did it, he says he doesn’t know.
Thankfully, no officers have been hurt.
Jabatty has been arrested for assaulting a detention officer in the past.
