CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -
A Chandler man has been arrested on two counts of assault for allegedly spraying two people in the face with a homemade concoction he called "holy water."
The liquid contained vegetable oil, bleach and hot sauce, according to a court document. Francisco Javier Villa, 36, told officers he obtained it from the Mormon Temple in Mesa.
Chandler police said the two victims who were sprayed, Shawn Rosen and Robert Warnar, live at the apartment complex at 100 West Nopal Place in Chandler.
Rosen told officers he saw Villa spraying the bushes, sidewalk, and air with a spray bottle Thursday. As Rosen got in his car to go to the store, he noticed there was liquid sprayed on his vehicle, police said.
Rosen said Villa admitted to the act. Rosen moved his car to another spot and as he was exiting, Villa charged at him and began spraying Rosen's face and clothes, officers said. Rosen said he backed away and Villa began chasing him, police said.
Warnar told officers he was on his balcony when he saw the incident unfold.
Villa charged at Rosen a second time and once again began spraying him with the spray bottle, the court document stated. Rosen then called 911.
Warnar told police Villa walked to the area just below Warnar's apartment and sprayed him in the face with the same liquid.
Villa was taken to the Chandler Police Department where he was fingerprinted and photographed and booked into jail.
Police said they've responded to other incidents involving Villa at the complex but didn't elaborate.
