Police released three pictures of the man believed to be responsible.

Police said that Samuel Duran, 38, was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $50,000.

Police said they believe Duran is responsible for both Monday’s incident and the assault reported in January.
