Wheeling Man Arrested After Convenience Store Incident

A Wheeling man was arrested Tuesday evening after punching two people and becoming combative inside an Elm Grove business, according to the Wheeling Police Department.

Brendan Neil Hinzman, 35, was charged with two counts of battery, fleeing and destruction of property, WPD said. He was transported to the Northern Regional Jail by police. A court arraignment in front of an Ohio County magistrate was pending as of Wednesday afternoon.

According to WPD, officers were called just after 8 p.m. Tuesday to the Paradise Food Mart located on Kruger Street for a report of a man inside being destructive. When officers arrived, they approached the individual and ordered him to stop his aggressive behavior. He allegedly refused officers’ orders, exited the business and fled on foot.

Multiple units arrived on scene to assist the initial responding officers, who eventually would arrest the suspect in the rear of a residence on Paxton Avenue.

An injured employee of the store was taken to Wheeling Hospital to be evaluated for their injuries. The second person did not require medical attention.
