(INDIANAPOLIS) - Metro police are investigating after a man vandalized a Wayne Township Fire Department vehicle with an ax.

RTV6 reports, Wayne Township EMS Operations Officer Shane Hardwick drove his staff car home Friday afternoon, and it was vandalized in his driveway in the 2300 block of North Alabama Street, a Wayne Township fire spokesman said.

Hardwick said he heard a commotion outside around 5 p.m., and when he went to investigate he saw a man striking his car with an ax.

The ax got stuck in the vehicle's door, and the man fled in his pickup truck, Hardwick said.

Hardwick said he'd never seen the man before.

The man is white and about 6 feet tall with a thin build and a salt-and-pepper "scruffy" beard.

The man was driving a mid-size pickup truck that was black or navy blue, and it had white spray paint writing on the sides and the word "think" written on the tailgate in spray paint.
