Dispatch received several calls of a man in the Rio Grande district running around with a pipe vandalizing cars. At the same time Salt Lake City Fire personnel were in the area on another call when they could hear the male hitting the back of one of their fire engines with a metal pipe. The suspect then started to run at the firefighters with the pipe in hand and they immediately called for police assistance.
