On the evening of Sept. 5 the Los Angeles Police Dept. was in pursuit of a vehicle traveling on the Foothill (210) Freeway. The suspect driving the vehicle exited the freeway and stopped his vehicle in the 2600 block of Mary Street.
According to a resident, she heard a noise in her backyard and discovered a man without a shirt on and covered with tattoos. He had jumped the fence and was facing her patio door. She called 9-1-1 and spoke to the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station.
The Sheriff’s Station had three patrol units in the field; however, because the resident had called 9-1-1 from her cellphone, the exact address had not registered and, according to Lt. Marjory Jacobs, the caller simply stated she was in the 2600 block of Mary Street.
The resident watched the suspect climb over the fence into her neighbor’s yard.
The suspect apparently contacted an acquaintance who came and picked him up in another vehicle.
Sheriff’s deputies saw the other vehicle when it fled the area and was able to get that information to LAPD.
“[The suspects] were taken into custody,” Jacobs said.
CVW has requested more information from LAPD concerning the nature of the pursuit.
