    MALIBU, California (KABC) — Alarming video shows a man attacking a Malibu home with a pickaxe over the 4th of July weekend, and authorities are asking the public’s help in tracking him down.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, 55-year-old Thomas Aaron Brothers is wanted in connection with multiple vandalism incidents that occurred on Saturday, July 2.

Authorities said the attacks happened in the 19000 block of the Pacific Coast Highway.

Brothers was captured on footage from a resident’s Ring camera swinging the pickaxe at their door. He damaged the front door and the camera, according to the sheriff’s department.
