The uncle of a 14-year-old and 16-year-old allegedly threatened them with a knife in a home they all live in together, Chula Vista police Lt. Lon Turner said. The teenagers locked themselves in a bedroom and called police around 3 p.m.
Chula Vista police taped off the 1200 block of Aruba Cove and asked residents to shelter in place. Police tried to contact the suspect, who they initially thought was sitting in the downstairs of the residence, while the teens were locked in a bedroom, police said.
Around 5:30 p.m., police were notified by family that man was in a nearby park and took him into custody. Investigators said he will be taken to get a mental evaluation.
