Around 5:35am, while Police were taking a report for the crash, another call for assistance came which involved a man chasing a neighbor with a machete at 223 King Road. When Officer Zack Upton arrived at 223 King Road, he saw a man meeting the description of the hit and run suspect run into 225 King Road.

He also saw a vehicle in the driveway with the color and damage consistent with the vehicle leaving the scene at the Shell Station. Additionally, the man, identified as Mark Redden, was determined to have been involved in the confrontation with the machete.

Officer Upton contacted Redden at 225 King Road and conducted a dual investigation into the hit and run and Aggravated Assault. He found the confrontation at King Road was precipitated after Michael Vermeis, 39 confronted Redden about loudly revving the engine and told him to stop.

The verbal argument turned physical when Redden lunged at Vermeis. Redden was punched in the face and knocked to the ground. He retrieved a machete from his truck, swinging it as he advanced on Vermeis who then picked up a rake to defend himself.

During the course of Redden’s interview, he admitted to approaching Vermeis with the machete.
Officer Upton through the course of the investigation determined Redden had been the person who had hit the delivery vehicle and alcohol was involved. Redden was administered sobriety tests which he did not satisfactorily complete.
