Man arrested in Glendale after brawl with passerby

A 37-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly fought with and then drove toward a passerby who yelled at him for roughly grabbing a woman by her neck, police said.

Robert Issaui was taken into custody 2:35 p.m. after police said they found the shirtless passerby, who was limping, sweating and bleeding from his left knee at Central Avenue and Windsor Road.

The passerby told police he was crossing the intersection when he saw Issaui driving a Honda Civic, honking the horn and make a quick left turn, according to Glendale police.

Issaui, who the passerby described as visibly upset, reportedly parked, got out of the Honda and tried pulling the woman into his car by grabbing the back of her neck, police said.

That’s when the passerby yelled at Issaui to stop.

Issaui allegedly yelled back, crossed the street and threw a punch, igniting a brawl.

Several witnesses were able to restrain the pair, who then went their separate ways until Issaui allegedly then drove toward the passerby, who jumped on the car hood to avoid being run over, police said.

Issaui, who reportedly drove away after the alleged incident, was arrested a short time later, according to police.
