Atherton police arrested a 30-year-old Menlo Park man for throwing his skateboard at a moving car in an unprovoked attack on Friday, Sept. 27, according to a police press release.
A motorist was driving down Elena Avenue approaching Park Lane around 8:30 a.m. when a man threw a skateboard at the driver's side of the car, breaking a mirror and leaving "a large dent on the driver's side door," according to police.
The man fled through the Menlo Circus Club property, and the driver provided a description of him to police, who searched the area for him. Police found and arrested him at the Menlo Park Caltrain station.
The driver did not know the man with the skateboard, according to police.
