According to Sgt. Mark Lord of the GGPD, police responding to a fire at the Crystal View Apartments at 12021 Chapman Ave. at 1:47 a.m. helped evacuate the complex, and noticed a naked male in a stairwell.
He was bleeding from a cut on one arm and “was uncooperative” with officers. He was detained by officers and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Officers later determined the person lived in the complex and was arrested for an unrelated offense.
