Police blotter 7.2.11

Man with outstanding warrant found in shower 

On Thursday, June 23 a Claremont Police officer pulled over a 35-year-old man riding a bicycle at the corner of Foothill Blvd. and Sumner Ave. at 10:30 p.m. to cite the cyclist with a vehicle code violation. The man then fled from the officer into the trailer park complex at 400 E. Foothill Blvd. 

A witness in the complex reported to the officer the man went into one of the trailers. The Pomona Police Department arrived on the scene to provide backup as officers then entered into the trailer and found the suspect inside the shower in the bathroom.

Police received a call regarding 2 suspicious men attempting to solicit money from people at the Chevron gas station and McDonalds at 850 S. Indian Hill Blvd around 7 p.m. The men were located at the Greyhound bus station just down the block when police arrived on the scene.

While one of the men was released, the other man lied to police about his name before finally revealing his true identity. Due to having a warrant for his arrest, the man then attempted to run from officers, but was retained when an officer grabbed the back of his shirt and wrestled him to the ground.

A brief struggle took place between the man and the officer before he was handcuffed. Pomona resident Harvey Millender, 45, was arrested for having an outstanding warrant, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.
