BRENTWOOD — At least seven vehicles were struck by projectiles before Brentwood PD arrested a 31-year-old man for allegedly doing this. Windows were damaged but fortunately no one was reported injured, although the investigation remains active.
Drivers were targeted along a stretch of Brentwood Boulevard, between Homecoming Way and Sunset Road. Vehicles were hit on January 13th and 14th. The reported incidents occurred during a 20-hour period, until 1:40 a.m. on January 14th.
Investigators identified Brandon J. Hasenpusch, a resident of Brentwood, as the suspect in this foolishness. On the evening of January 14th, his residence on Almond Street was searched. Authorities recovered unspecified evidence, and Hasenpusch was placed under arrest at 5:41 p.m. He was booked on suspicion of recklessly discharging/throwing a substance at vehicles with intent to cause great bodily injury.
Hasenpusch is housed at the West County Detention Facility in Richmond. A judge set bond at $140,000 for his release from custody.
