GLENDORA – A Los Angeles transient fled through yards and Glendora High School for roughly three-quarters of a mile before engaging officers in a brief foot pursuit.
Jeffrey Madrinan, 30, was arrested Tuesday after refusing to stop for police who were responding to numerous calls of a prowler in the area of Foothill Boulevard near Glendora High School. Madrinan, who may suffer from mental issues, was fleeing because he though he was being chased, according to Sgt. Marty Barrett of the Glendora Police Department.
Glendora Police began receiving calls of a prowler around 11:57 a.m.
Madrinan ran through numerous backyards and was seen on the grounds of Glendora High School, 1600 E. Foothill Blvd., near the tennis courts on the eastern side of campus.
Officers located Madrinan who then led police on a two-block foot pursuit before he was arrested, Barrett said.
Madrinan was booked on suspicion of prowling, resisting arrest and trespassing on school grounds. Additional booking information was unavailable.
