Two arrested just off Broadway for weapons, warrants

On November 27th, just before 6:00 am, East Precinct officers were responding to a report of a fight disturbance involving a knife, in the alley just west of the 1500 Block of Broadway Avenue.  Officers contacted three males in the alley.  During the initial contact, as one of the suspects was raising his hands, a large fixed blade knife fell to the pavement.  The 24 year old male was immediately taken into custody.  During a further search of the suspect, another knife and a “slungshot”  were recovered.  Officers determined that a second suspect had an outstanding $10,000 warrant.  That 24 year old male was also arrested.  The third individual was interviewed and released from the scene after his name was checked.
