On Wednesday afternoon, a group of teens were walking home from school in an Anaheim neighborhood when an Anaheim resident confronted the teens. The resident is an LAPD officer who was off duty at the time. He complains that the teens were allegedly walking on his property. The officer and teens exchanged some words and that’s when the off duty policeman allegedly grabbed a 13 year old boy. The other teens immediately took out their phones to start recording what happened next.

The 13 year old boy allegedly threatened to shoot the man, according to Anaheim police, which led to the off duty officer trying to handcuff the boy. “You’ve been resisting the whole time,” the man told the boy, who you can see in the video refusing to let go. “Punch a kid in the nuts, that’s a pussy move,” the boy responded. “Let me go, for the last time!”

The boy alleged that the off duty officer called a girl a “cunt” when telling her to get off his lawn, then tackled the boy first when he stood up for the girl.

Anaheim police Sgt. Darin Wyatt said that the police were called to the Friendly Village mobile home park on La Palma Ave. after a report of domestic violence. But, before the police had arrived, the suspect, a man in his 30’s, fled saying he wasn’t going to go quietly and threatening “suicide by cop.”

According to Sgt. Wyatt the police set up a perimeter around the mobile home park to search for him. The people in the area were warned to shelter in place because it was unknown if the man was armed.

Anaheim’s city police helicopter was sent in, to provide a spotlight and aerial surveillance. Soon after the police in the helicopter spotted a man fitting the suspect’s description hiding in the bushes around the search area. Officers were sent to that location and arrested the suspect “without incident,” Wyatt said.
