Resident finds man wearing no pants in backyard

La Mirada-   Deputies had no idea what they would encounter when dispatchers rushed them to the 14500 block of Florita Rd. Thursday after multiple 911 callers reported a man was pointing a gun at another man ordering him to get on the ground.

Deputies arriving within three minutes of the 5:13 p.m. call found a resident who was an off-duty law enforcement officer found an intruder wearing no pants in his backyard and confronted him about his presence.

The resident drew his weapon after the suspect began throwing lawn furniture at the homeowner.

Deputies immediately recognized the suspect as someone they had arrested several times recently.

The sheriff's Mental Evaluation Team was contacted and the man was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. 

This is the second such type of incident recently in La Mirada. On February 19 a woman living in the 14600 block of Richvale Dr observed a man around 7 a.m. in her backyard who attempted to open a door to get inside the home.

Deputies were summoned quickly and able to detain the man who was also transported to a hospital.
