The incident occurred around 9 a.m. in the 300 block of East Crestglen Road. Police locked down the neighborhood. The incident concluded with the suspect being detained without incident about 30 minutes later.

“He felt people were after him and was acting out of fear. We transported him to an evaluation and found him to be 5150 and placed a hold on him,” said Sgt. Mike Henderson of Glendora Police.
