Orange County: Man involved in indiscriminate attack at Anaheim library several hours from target stores arrested by camera, police say

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) — The man wanted in connection with two violent and indiscriminate attacks in Anaheim in early March has been arrested.

Both attacks were caught on surveillance video.

Police say 32-year-old Ivory Julian Anderson Jr. allegedly assaulted a Target store customer and library employee within two hours.

At around 6:15 p.m. on March 3, an employee at Anaheim Central Library was beaten unconscious and had to be taken to the hospital. Police say the suspect approached the library employee when the employee walked through the library’s main entrance, stepped in the victim’s path and hit him once.

“He saw a bunch of women and kids in the library on that front and everyone looked shocked,” said Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department. “He just steps over this unconscious victim … even appears to be looking over his shoulder and is possibly laughing and smiling as he walks away.”

The librarian has since recovered from a laceration on the back of his head and is back at work, officials said.

Two hours earlier, Anderson Jr. allegedly entered a Target store on the 100 block of S. Euclid Street, violently pushed a customer who was standing near a checkout counter, and then began chasing the victim through the store.

The Target customer was not seriously injured.

On Friday night, detectives took Anderson Jr., who police say is a transient, into custody in the Broadway and Manchester Avenue area of ​​Anaheim.

Police say Anderson Jr. admitted to both assaults. He was charged with assault in the Orange County Jail.
