Police: Crossing guard told driver to slow down, attacked

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - A man accused of attacking a crossing guard and later threatening to have officers killed during his arrest, was angry at the victim for telling him to slow down in a school zone, according to police.

An arrest report was released for Adam Kondrat, 21, who officers arrested during the attack in the area of South Maryland Parkway and East Gary Avenue just after 8:15 a.m. Monday.

Police said Kondrat was seen on top of the victim, hitting him, while another person was attempting to pull him off.

Officers attempted to detain Kondrat, who was aggressive with police. In the document, police stated Kondrat kicked one of the officers hard enough for that person to buckle his knee sideways.

Police also arrested at the scene Sabrina Torres, 22, who was identified as Kondrat's girlfriend. In the document, police stated Torres approached and screamed at officers, refusing orders to walk away.

Police stated Kondrat continued his verbal tirade at officers while detained in a patrol car, using homophobic slurs at them.

Several witnesses told police Kondrat had gotten out of the driver's side of an Audi that was seen cutting off people and going about 50 mph in an active school zone. Kondrat had exited the vehicle when the crossing guard was in his way, according to one witness.

Witnesses said Kondrat began yelling at the victim. When the guard told him to slow down, Kondrat began attacking him, witnesses said. The arrest report also stated Torres appeared to have handed Kondrat the guard's sign to possibly use as a weapon.

Police said the guard received bumps and cuts to his head as well as bleeding from his legs and elbows. A former police officer who saw the attack and tried pulling the suspect off in the incident received a deep cut to his face that required six stitches, the document stated.

Police went on to state Kondrat asked the officers their names, boasting that he can hire people to kill them and their families “because he has money and he is from Detroit.”

Kondrat was booked into Clark County Detention Center on counts that include:

  • Battery on a victim over 60 years old;
  • Resisting a public officer;
  • Battery by a prisoner, anti-homosexual hate-related;
  • Battery on a protected person;
  • Mayhem;
  • First-degree intimidating a public officer;
  • Stopping a vehicle on a highway;
  • And, first-degree driving under the influence.
