TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Police said a man went on a rampage inside a downtown Toledo gas station attacking passers-by and gas station customers.

It happened just before 10 Wednesday morning at the Shell Truth North on Monroe Street.

Police said it all started outside the gas station when the suspect began attacking a man for no reason. Then it moved inside as the victim tried to get to safety.

That is where the surveillance video starts, showing the suspect, identified as Antonio Temple-Olvero, tearing up the convenience store as he tried to attack the victim. Store displays went flying.

Then, police said Temple-Olvero went back outside to the gas pumps and confronted another customer. Others stepped in to flag down a passing Toledo firetruck.

Despite Temple-Olvero's attempts to fight with them, a group of firefighters were able to restrain the man to the pavement until police arrived.

Temple-Olvero was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

Police said he refused to speak to anyone at the scene or hospital.

They do not yet know what provoked him, and why he was so disturbed.

"He was having some type of mental episode, obviously. Whether it was drug-induced or not, we just don't know, but he was certainly causing a panic there at the gas station," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan.

Temple-Olvero is facing charges of assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for creating such a scare for customers at the gas station.
