Austin (KXAN) – A man was arrested Monday morning after he smashed a bank window and hit a security guard in the head with a crowbar, police said.

According to court records, 31-year-old James Rashad Harris was at the Bank of America, 500 blocks on Congress Avenue, when he broke the ATM window inside with a metal bar.

According to the affidavit, as Harris left the bank, two security guards identified themselves and began pursuing him, demanding that Harris stop.

When APD arrived, officers said they heard what sounded like a metal object hitting the sidewalk, and security said Harris had dropped a metal pipe.

One of the guards said he was not provoked when Harris brandished a metal crowbar and hit the side of his head. According to court records, guards needed him two staples to close the wound.

KXAN has contacted an attorney representing Harris. I will update this story if I get a reply.

Records show that a metal crowbar was recovered at the scene.

As of Wednesday, Harris remains in Travis County Jail on a first-degree felony charge.
