A man was arrested Saturday night when he tried to enter the wrong residence, a home of an off-duty police officer.
The man was chased by the homeowner and sustained an injury during the brief foot pursuit, police said.
The subject, only described in his early 20s, was reportedly drunk and tried to enter a home in the 400 block of North Minnesota Avenue at around 9:51 p.m. The resident was an off-duty police officer, said Sergeant Mike Randazzo of Glendora Police.
The officer reportedly chased the subject a very brief distance, about half a block, before reportedly detaining the subject at gunpoint, according to scanner reports.
Somewhere along the brief foot pursuit, the subject allegedly ran into a tree and received a laceration. The subject was taken to an area hospital and was not arrested, Randazzo said.
The off-duty officer, from an outside agency, initially believed the subject was attempting a burglary.
"I don't think he was actually trying to break in. I guess he was pretty drunk, so I guess he [the subject] didn't exactly know what he was trying to do," Randazzo said.
