Detectives with the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station are looking for a man who allegedly brandished a firearm Monday afternoon at La Cañada Flintridge’s Flint Canyon Tennis Club before taking off in a silver sedan.
Station Watch Commander Lt. Robert Hahnlein said Monday a call came in from the club on Berkshire Avenue at around 2:15 p.m., after the driver of the vehicle displayed some kind of gun to an employee working at the club.
“There was a person there who looked like they shouldn’t be there,” the watch commander said Monday. “When they told him to leave, he brandished a firearm and then left in a vehicle.”
A vehicle possibly matching the same description was seen shortly after the incident driving on or near Oakwood Avenue, Hahnlein said, but when deputies arrived on scene, it was determined not to be to the same person seen earlier at the tennis club.
During a follow-up call to the station Tuesday, Lt. Mark Lopez said a sheriff’s report of the incident on Berkshire Avenue describes the driver and a passenger inside the sedan as two black adult males. Surveillance footage at Flint Canyon Tennis Club was retrieved but did not return information on the vehicle’s license plate, Lopez said.
Anyone who may have information about the incident is asked to call the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station non-emergency line at (818) 248-3464.
