Alleged fight, theft of radio-controlled car in park lead to arrest
A 20-year-old Glendale man faces charges for allegedly robbing another man of a radio-controlled car at a park and threatening to “shoot up his house” if he reported the incident to police, authorities said.
Marcus Javier was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of robbery and making criminal threats to a man who was playing with a miniature radio-controlled gas car about 7:45 p.m. at Carr Park in the 1600 block of East Colorado Street, according to Glendale police reports.
Javier allegedly approached the man at the park and told him: “Hey fool, nice car. Give me your money,” according to police reports.
The men allegedly got into a fight, and according to the police report, Javier eventually grabbed the radio-controlled car and asked the man where he lived.
Javier also was arrested on outstanding warrants for driving without a valid license and failing to appear in court or pay a fine, according police records. He was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
