BUENA PARK (CBSLA) – Police swarmed a Buena Park neighborhood Wednesday in search of a possibly armed suspect who fled following a short pursuit.

Just after 2 p.m., police attempted to pull over a white Honda at Seventh Street and Marshall Avenue, said Buena Park police Sgt. Mike Lovchik. The pursuit lasted for just a block or two before the suspect “bailed” in the 6100 block of Marshall, Lovchik said.

Police set up a perimeter between Commonwealth Avenue and Artesia Boulevard, from Beach Boulevard and Stanton Avenue. Northbound Beach was closed at Commonwealth.

The suspect may have been carrying a rifle, Lovchik said. Residents in the area were urged to stay inside with their doors and windows locked.

The suspect is described as a man in his 20s who was wearing black clothes, Lovchik said.

It was not immediately clear why police attempted to pull the suspect over.
