When police arrived the suspect was not there but, after talking with those present, police say that they learned that the 29-year-old Cesar Reyes of Utica had allegedly come to the home and began to damage a vehicle belonging to the victim.

Police say Reyes allegedly smashing the vehicle's windshield, windows, and lights.  Reyes allegedly then approached the victim and, according to a written release from the UPD, "began to repeatedly strike him in the head, arms, and body with a metal pipe until which time others intervened and the male fled the location."
