The Eighth Squad reports the arrest of a Farmingdale man for an incident that occurred in Farmingdale on Saturday, October 31, 2020 at 5:20 pm.
According to detectives, Anthony Ayala, 20, of 16 Yoakum Avenue attempted to enter Fabio’s Deli and Grocery, 499 Conklin Street. A 26-year-old male manager denied him entry concerning past confrontations with two of his female employees, ages 52 and 21, both who have protective stay away orders involving him. After being told to leave Ayala then kicked the front door causing the glass to shatter. He then went to the rear of the store and kicked the door causing it to fall off its hinges. Ayala then walked outside and confronted another 28-year-old male employee who was holding a pipe fearing for his safety. Ayala forcibly removed the pipe from his hand and began punching the victim in the chest as well as hitting him with the pipe in the abdomen causing a laceration and pain. Ayala then fled the scene on foot.
Responding officers located Ayala a short distance away and attempted to place him into custody. After resisting arrest, Ayala was eventually placed into custody.
