On September 5, police were called to the 300 block of Thornton regarding a domestic situation.

As they neared the residence, officers heard two men arguing. As the police officers prepared to enter, a Hispanic male holding a large stick came to the door. Officers told him to put the stick down. The man ran shut the door.

The police officers heard a male yelling for help. Forcibly entering, police officers saw the man fighting with another male.

Although the man resisted he was eventually handcuffed, and identified himself as “James Bond.” The police later learned his true identity.

The other man told the police officers he and his mother were inside their home when the man, who was unknown to them, broke in and destroyed things, threatened him, and attacked him with a sword.

The subject was arrested. A complaint will be filed.
