Submitted by Howard B. Owens on January 10, 2015 – 10:45am The driver of a pickup truck that plowed into the western entryway of Batavia’s police headquarters did so intentionally, investigators say.
Charges are pending against Steven J. Mancuso-Haitz Jr., according to a statement released by BPD.
Mancuso-Haitz is identified by police as the man who drove a 1998 Chevrolet S10 pickup into the building at 2:57 p.m., Friday, causing damage to the doorway, but apparently not causing any structural damage.
The driver was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for evaluation.
The investigation is ongoing, police said.
No motive was given for Mancuso-Haitz to allegedly drive his truck into the building. Mancuso-Haitz has had prior local law enforcement contact, including an incident that led to this correction by The Batavian in 2011.
