Burbank arcade owner holds down teen suspected of vandalism for police

The owner of an arcade in Burbank held down an 18-year-old suspected of causing more than $400 in damage to two game machines while police responded to make the arrest Saturday.

The Sylmar teen -- identified as Antonio Lopez -- was arrested on suspicion of vandalism Saturday after allegedly etching on the machines at the All Amusement Fun Center on East Magnolia Boulevard, said Burbank Police Lt. Eddie Ruiz.

When police arrived, the business owner was holding down Lopez, who was allegedly seen etching letters onto the glass panels of two arcade games, Ruiz said.

The alleged vandalism caused more than $400 in damage, he added.

Lopez was being held in lieu of $20,000 bail on Monday. He is due in court later in the week.
