Knife Wielding Suspect Arrested In El Sereno

Police arrested a suspect Wednesday, who allegedly chased another man around with a knife and tried to attack arriving officers.

Officers found a man with a knife but no victim about 10 a.m. at Valley Boulevard at Del Paso Avenue, said Officer Mike Vallejo of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Station.

“He was arrested for battery on a police officer for attempting to strike the officers,” Vallejo said.

Officers did not know whether the victim, who took off before they got to the scene, suffered any wounds or why he was targeted, Vallejo said.

The suspect’s name was not immediately released.
