Search for felony suspect shuts down Harvard Heights neighborhood

A Harvard Heights neighborhood was briefly shut down Thursday while police searched for a suspect

A man wanted on a felony arrest warrant in Los Angeles was taken into custody with the help of a police dog after a two-hour search in Harvard Heights, police said.

The man, whose identity and was not immediately available, ran away from police after they served a felony warrant in the 2200 block of Washington Boulevard about 6:20 a.m., said Officer Rosario Herrera.

SWAT officers set up a perimeter and after about two hours, found him on a roof about two blocks away off 18th Street and St. Andrews Place, Herrera said. A police dog was used in helping subdue the man.

The perimeter was then shut down and the area reopened. The man was wanted for felony domestic violence, police said.
