According to the UCPD crime log for Wednesday, a man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on the second floor of the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and was taken to Santa Rita Jail.
The man, 36-year-old Andrew Kushibiki, entered an open seating area at the business school just before 1:39 p.m. Wednesday, according to an email from UCPD spokesperson Sgt. Nicolas Hernandez.
According to the email, Kushibiki confronted the victim unprovoked and accused him of being a Russian spy, knocking his papers from the table onto the ground. Kushibiki “attacked” the victim for about five minutes and brandished a chair at him.
Witnesses called UCPD and, according to the email, held Kushibiki down until officers came and took him into custody.
