I attempted to regain control of Mr. Dustin, but found myself falling forward as Mr. Dustin pulled away from me. I then noticed Mr. Dustin fell forward and towards the glass window of a business. Mr. Dustin then struck and broke the establishment window. I grabbed Mr. Dustin's arms and pulled him back. Sergeant Randolph assisted me and helped be secure Mr. Dustin again.
