Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said four males were seen around 11:15 a.m. exiting the back of a home in the first block of Santos Street carrying a TV. One of the home’s windows had been broken.

When an officer apprehended one of the suspects and tried to detain him, another suspect stepped in and tried to free his cohort, Esparza said.

A struggle ensued, and an officer suffered a minor hand injury, he said.

Two suspects were eventually taken into custody, Esparza said.

At one point, extra officers were requested to control a crowd that had gathered, he said.
