A trespasser claiming to be armed barricaded himself for about seven hours inside a Glendale home Sunday night.
The standoff began around 5 p.m., just off the 300 block of El Bonito Avenue at Gardena Avenue, after someone called the Glendale Police Department about a trespasser. The man refused to come out and threatened officers, police said, prompting a SWAT response.
It was not immediately clear whether the man was armed.
The standoff ended around midnight when authorities used flash bang grenades and tear gas, City News Service reported.
