Knife-wielding man arrested after breaking into mom’s home, police say

A 26-year-old man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly broke into his mother’s home with a knife.

Corey Petrie was arrested after reportedly barricading himself in a back bedroom of the home on the 600 block of North Griffith Park Drive. Burbank police evacuated the home and adjacent neighbors before using a Taser to subdue and then arrest Petrie.

POlice said he was also wanted in connection with an alleged assault Friday night at Orchard Supply Hardware.
