BERKELEY— A man arrested more than 25 times faces fresh charges involving disturbances outside restaurants. This frequent offender was taken into custody downtown last weekend.

One person was injured, a window was shattered, and customers were frightened away from two restaurants on September 11th. All this trouble began late in the afternoon when the suspect was observed damaging a sidewalk tree.

After someone told the man to stop what he was doing, he pulled out a knife and frightened several persons in the area. This happened outside a pizzeria and a Thai restaurant located on University Avenue.

The suspect identified as Ronald J. Agabao, 46 of Alameda, next allegedly threw a rock at another man nearby. The rock hit the victim, injuring his shoulder.

More rocks were thrown, which shattered a window at Bobby G’s Pizzeria, located at 2072 University Avenue. This caused more than $1,000 worth of damage.

A dining customer fled leaving behind a wallet and a phone, which Agabao allegedly stole. Both items were later recovered when Berkeley officers arrested him nearby at 5 p.m.

Agabao was booked into Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. He remains in custody in lieu of $97,500 bond, pending a court hearing on October 6.

He faces multiple charges, including exhibiting a deadly weapon, assault, vandalism, and petty theft. At the time of his arrest, he was on probation for a previous assault conviction.

Agabao has numerous prior arrests on his record involving drug dealing and vehicle thefts, among other offenses.
