Trespassing Suspect Arrested After Hourslong Barricade

By City News Service

A man who claimed to be armed and allegedly threatened officers refused to leave a Glendale house for about seven and a half hours until police ended the barricade with flash bang grenades and tear gas, authorities said on Monday.
The situation began late Sunday afternoon with a call of a man trespassing in the backyard in the 300 block of El Bonito Avenue, Glendale police Sgt. A. Schoonmaker told City News Service.
The alleged trespasser then went into the house and refused to leave, she said. A SWAT team responded to the house. The standoff ended around midnight on Monday, Schoonmaker said. She did not say whether the man was armed.
