DAVIE, Fla. – Police have identified a man who was captured on surveillance video last month repeatedly striking a teenage boy with a pool cue in Davie as Zachary Alexander Haedo.

The attack was reported Sept. 22 at the Toscana apartment complex at 5971 Toscana Drive.

According to an incident report, Jason Colmenares was drinking coffee with his friend inside the lobby when Haedo, who had been playing pool nearby, came up from behind and struck him twice on the right side of his head and face with a pool cue.

Colmenares said the man asked him, "Do you remember what you did to my sister?" before walking out of the building.

The South Plantation High School junior said he doesn't know Haedo and certainly doesn't know his sister. 

Colmenares was taken to Broward Health Medical Center with serious injuries to his head and face.

"He hit me twice and he was coming for me," Colmenares said. "It's scary. To go out of my house, or go to the pool, it is scary." 

Authorities said Haedo's parents have not been cooperative with detectives as the search continues for their son. 

Police said Haedo is believed to be in Davie or staying with relatives in the Miami Springs area.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Davie police at 954-693-8200 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
