Alhambra police arrested three male suspects after they broke into a home on Thursday.
The Alhambra Police Department received a call from a resident in the 1800 block of South Geranio Drive around 10:30 pm. The caller reported seeing three unknown subjects in his home. The resident was viewing a home security app on his phone when he saw the suspects, according to a press release from the APD.
Officers arrived within 30 seconds and saw three suspects exiting the back door of the house. The suspects started climbing over the walls and running from yard to yard to avoid capture.
Officers set up a perimeter with assistance from outside agencies and a helicopter from Pasadena. They located one suspect hiding in a nearby garage and ordered him to surrender around midnight. A police K-9 from the APD was sent in after he refused to surrender. The suspect attacked the K-9 and injured its mouth. The injured K-9 was called back, and a second K-9 from the Whittier Police Department was then sent in. The suspect, who received minor injuries from K-9 bites, later surrendered.
Alhambra police then located and detained the other two suspects in a garage near Geranio Drive and Shorb Street.
The Alhambra K-9 that sustained injuries is expected to fully recover.
The suspects are identified as 20-year-old Taveonne Davenport, 21-year-old Keith Vincent Wickware, and 18-year-old Deonte Jerome Pinker. They are all residents of Los Angeles. All three suspects will be charged with felony burglary and are scheduled to appear in Alhambra Superior Court on Tuesday, May 24. Their bail has been set at $50,000.
