A suspected thief armed with a knife allegedly tried to steal something at a Macy’s department store in Sherman Oaks before he was arrested Friday.
Authorities were notified at 5:10 p.m. that security guards had taken the knife-wielding suspect into custody at the Macy’s at Westfield Fashion Square at 14006 Riverside Drive, according to Los Angeles police Officer Drake Madison.
It’s unclear what the suspect, who is in his 30s, tried to take, Madison said.
The man, whose name was not immediately released, complained of pain and was taken to a hospital to be medically cleared for booking.
