Police arrest one man, search for another in Valley grocery store robberies
One man was arrested this morning and Los Angeles police are searching for another in connection with at least half a dozen grocery store robberies in the San Fernando Valley, authorities said.
Officers were making an investigative stop of two men near Riverside Drive and Fulton Avenue in Sherman Oaks about 5:40 a.m. when they suddenly bolted. One man was taken into custody, and the other fled into the neighborhood, prompting police to set up a perimeter to search for him.
As a precaution, nearby Notre Dame High School and Riverside Elementary School were placed on temporary lockdown, police said.
