A teenager was cited Sunday after allegedly brandishing a 10-inch knife at a bicyclist while driving in a van with his mother, police said.
Before 5 p.m., a 37-year-old bicyclist told police that he was riding his bike on Palmer Avenue near Adams Street when a van behind him kept honking the horn, said Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.
He subsequently stopped at a stop sign and yelled, “What?”
As the van passed him, a passenger — later determined to be a 15-year-old boy — brandished a “very large” knife and yelled something that the biker didn’t understand, Lightfoot said.
While police detained the 45-year-old Glendale driver and her son to search the car, they found a 10-inch knife in the center console of the vehicle.
The minor, who was not identified, was cited for exhibiting a deadly weapon in a threatening manner and released to his mother, Lightfoot said.
