2600 block of Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta, an employee of Rite Aid was approached by a man who, at first, began a casual conversation with her about the store. He continued to shop, then began talking to himself saying, “Beep, Beep Security” which is similar to what store managers say over the intercom.
The employee approached the man who asked if she remembered him.
She said no. He then reminded her that he had been arrested a few years ago after going into the store’s restroom and using heroin. The employee contacted the sheriffs, concerned about the man’s strange behavior. A surveillance tape indicated the man allegedly stole a soda as he walked around the store. He then left the store.
The man was “obtained” by deputies. The incident occurred at 10:50 a.m.
3100 block of Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta, a resident reported that as she was pulling into her apartment a man, later identified as a 47-year-old La Crescenta man, approached her vehicle and began banging on the door and yelling profanities. She continued to drive forward into the garage; the man followed her as she parked her car. She got out of her car and he came up to her and continued to yell profanities. She reportedly thought he was intoxicated and just wanted to get to her apartment. He apparently lived in the same apartment building and walked back to his unit.
The woman did not call the deputies at the time.
Later that night the woman and other witnesses heard what sounded like a shotgun being racked. Immediately after that a man was yelling profanities and allegedly stating he had a gun. The woman saw the same man who had yelled at her earlier that day in the courtyard with what looked like a gun in his hand. The man then walked over to her parked car and began kicking it and banging on the front windows. Several others witnessed the man’s action and him being in possession of a gun. Earlier in the day, deputies responded to the man’s apartment concerning gunfire. It was determined the gun had been fired accidently as it was being put away.
After the later call, the man was placed under private citizen arrest, and then arrested by deputies at 9:30 p.m.
