Can he run a garage in the garage?

I am the newly-elected President of a community of property owners and I am faced with a situation where the partner of the former President has been operating a car repair business in our community garage.
This man is not an owner. I have observed him repairing cars, using spaces without the owner’s permission and using the community electricity, as he keeps the lights on to repair the cars.
I have taken pictures which I have handed over to the Administrator. Sometimes there are half a dozen vehicles in the garage. When he sees me, he is abusive and aggressive, shouting rudely in my face.
What action can I take?

If the President of a community observes unauthorised activities on community property, he or she can take appropriate action to end these activities.

I suggest that you consult with your Administrator and send a formal notice, in the name of the community, to the former President to report that a person living at that address is carrying out unauthorised activities, and these activities should cease, or further action will be taken.
