Montebello man accused of head-butting security guard during shoe robbery

MONTEBELLO — Police arrested a man Friday on suspicion of head-butting a security guard while trying to steal shoes from a shoe store, authorities said.
The crime was reported just before 3:40 p.m. a Warehouse Shoe Sale, 1200 W. Beverly Blvd., Montebello police Lt. Andy Vuncanon said.
The suspect, a man in his early 20s, was expected to be booked on suspicion of robbery and making terrorist threats, the lieutenant said.
His name was not available late Friday pending booking, he added.
The suspect entered the store, took off his shoes and put on a new pair from the store, Vuncanon said.
“Then he attempted to exit the store and was stopped by security,” he said. “The subject head-butted one of the security officers.”
He also threatened to harm the security guards by stabbing them with a pen, Vuncanon added.
The security guards were not injured, police said.
Officers arrived to find the suspect being detained by store security and arrested him, Vuncanon said.
