November 26 at 9:34 p.m., police were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of East Los Angeles. A female resident reported her adult son was under the influence of narcotics so she wouldn't allow him into her home. The son broke a window on the home with a shovel and fled on foot. He went into the backyard of a residence across the street. He broke a window and gained entry into the home, where he was confronted by a woman who lived there. The suspect restrained the woman by grabbing both of her arms. When she tried to pull free, the suspect tightened his grip and told her she wasn't going anywhere. Another female heard the commotion and began to scream at the suspect, who then fled. He was detained by officers a short distance away, and was arrested without further incident.
