- by admin
The man who threw water on homeless men at a Metro station in New Jersey has been arrested and charged with assault, police said.
The incident happened around 4 p.m. on Thursday at the Station Square station, police told the New York Post.
The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Andrew Thomas, was taken into custody by New Jersey State Police troopers and is currently being held at the Middlesex County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Thomas was seen in a video with the men, who were homeless and wearing a towel, saying they were not going anywhere, the Post reported.
When asked if he threw water, Thomas said, “I am not going down there,” according to the Post.
Thomas, who is a member of the Salvation Army, has been identified as the suspect in several police investigations over the past year, including one involving a New Jersey man who allegedly attempted to use a stun gun to kill himself with his own gas mask.
Thomas faces three charges of criminal mischief, resisting arrest, and criminal possession of a weapon.
