Police Dispatch Helicopter Overnight to Search for Fugitive

Streets surrounding apartment complex were shut down.

Police attempted to take a parolee-at-large into custody on Tuesday evening at an apartment building on Glencoe Avenue and Washington Boulevard, but the man’s escape prompted a helicopter search throughout the night, according to Venice311

The Los Angeles Police Department established a perimeter around the apartment complex and blocked off surrounding streets. Some residents were not able to return home until about 2 a.m. The suspect, who jumped off a balcony to evade police, is still at-large.


Some twitter messages throughout the night: 

“Can they do an apt search so I can go to bed already?! I’ll gladly open my door for the police,” @dirty_dee 

“Stuck at friends apt pinned down by police helicopters and dogs. It'd be a slumber party if anyone could sleep. o_0,” @jessthehunted

“No one allowed in or out,” @inventionspodcast

The suspect was originally located at 4060 Glencoe, a 96 unit condo building. Residents inside the building were given no explanation of what was going on nor were they warned not to leave their condo.
