July 4

A residential burglary occurred in the 800 block of North Euclid Avenue. Pasadena Police officers responded to the incident; however, they were not able to locate the suspect. The incident was documented on a police report and the case was assigned to Pasadena Police Detective Anthony Burgess. There was very little suspect information available during the initial stages of the investigation; however, a suspect was identified with the assistance of SES Officer Jordan Ling. Detective Burgess obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s residence. The suspect was contact and later arrested for the residential burglary without incident. Further investigation by Detective Burgess implicated the suspect in a second break-in which occurred in the 100 block of Pepper Street in late May, 2015.

The victim was seriously injured during the assault (broken bones, bite marks, multiple abrasions), and the suspect (Lavonche Walker) fled the scene prior to the arrival of police officers. The case was subsequently assigned to detectives. On July 17, Walker was arrested without incident by officers assigned to the Special Enforcement Section (SES) and detectives assigned to the Fugitive Apprehension Unit (FAU). The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office for filing consideration.

Officers Herrera and Wilf attempted to conduct a traffic stop in the vicinity of Fair Oaks Avenue and Washington Boulevard; however, the suspect driver (solo occupant) failed to yield. A brief vehicle pursuit ensued. The suspect driver abruptly turned on to Tremont Street where he lost control of his car and struck a tree. Officers recovered a loaded handgun in close proximity to the vehicle. The suspect was arrested without incident and booked at the Pasadena jail for felon with a firearm and evading.

In the afternoon hours, Pasadena Police officers were in the area of Brookside Park investigating a burglary alarm call. The Police Communications Center began receiving several 9-1-1 calls regarding a large pine tree in the park near Kidspace that had fallen. The officers arrived immediately and starting helping the Kidspace staff, who were already searching for injured children. Additional police personnel arrived, along with the fire department and dozens of good Samaritans, all who worked together to rescue the young victims. Several young victims were transported to local hospitals, a few in critical conditions.
The actions of our first responders, Kidspace staff, and good Samaritans certainly underscores all that makes Pasadena a special place to work, play, visit, and live. We are blessed that no one was killed by the fallen tree and we are fortunate to have courageous heroes to are less concerned about their safety and seek to assist those in need.

August 1

Pasadena Police officers responded to Del Mar Blvd and Raymond Avenue regarding a traffic collision involving a white SUV and Metro Transit Training. Apparently the SUV failed to yield for the gate arms and struck the front (nose) of the Metro Transit Train. The SUV sustained moderate damage and the driver was not injured. All passengers on the training were uninjured. The Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department is investigating the collision since it occurred on the tracks, which is their jurisdiction.
