66-year-old Fred Wood Junior of Whiting was arrested yesterday, following the Tuesday night incident which was caught on surveillance video.

I just had it installed two months ago,” barbershop owner Craig Simpson said. “We have a video surveillance of a man in his 50s, approximately, breaking it with the wooden handle of an ax.”

Wood has since posted bail.
