Glendale Police Report Recent Crimes

At approximately 10 a.m. on April 22, the Glendale Police Department received a call regarding a 31-year-old man with a knife in the 300 block of Harvey Drive. Upon arrival, police learned that the suspect had been threatening his family with a knife. Once the suspect’s family was in a safe location away from the suspect, the man barricaded himself in a vehicle. Police responded to the scene with their Crisis Negotiations and SWAT teams. Negotiations began, and after approximately one hour, the suspect surrendered to officers and was safely taken into custody. The suspect was arrested for brandishing a knife in a threatening manner toward his family. After the arrest, the man was transported to a medical facility for a psychiatric evaluation.
On Saturday, April 20, just before 2 a.m., a Glendale police officer was patrolling the area of Community and New York avenues when he noticed a man wearing a pair of gloves and holding a flashlight while attempting to hide in between vehicles. After approaching the individual and conducting further investigation, the officer searched the man’s vehicle, which was parked nearby. The search revealed evidence of narcotics, personal identifying information of numerous victims, and a shaved key. The man was ultimately arrested for suspicion of burglary, possession of narcotics and identity theft.
Late Sunday morning, a Glendale resident returned home in the 2600 block of Cañada Boulevard to find it had been burglarized. At about 11:30 a.m., the resident called Glendale police to report the residential burglary. Officers arrived and found that the point of entry was an unlocked rear slider door. The reported loss was a significant amount of cash and jewelry. The suspect has not yet been identified and the investigation is ongoing as of April 25.
