On Saturday, Dec. 6, at about 11:45 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to the Walgreens at 11951 N. 1st Ave. in response to an assault. The victim, a bell ringer for the Salvation Army, told police that at about 11:40 a.m., he was standing in front of the store and ringing a bell. At that point, a man parked his car near the entrance, got out of his car and walked toward him screaming profanities, calling him a pedophile and told him to stop staring at his daughter. The victim told the man he was not staring at his daughter. The man then spit on the victim, and then used both hands to push him and knocked him to the ground. The victim said he threw his bell at the man as he got in his car and drove away. Police watched surveillance footage that showed the incident and a witness gave them the license plate number to the suspect’s car. Later that day, police went to the suspect’s house but at that time, were unable to make contact with the man. The victim said he wanted to prosecute in this case.
