A 42-year-old man who allegedly robbed an Alhambra convenience store and was later arrested by officers at San Marino High School will be arraigned today.
William Bolczak was booked by Alhambra police early Sunday in connection with the holdup of a 7-Eleven at 1111 N. Garfield Ave. in Alhambra the night before.
The events leading up to his arrest began at 11:19 p.m. Saturday when the Alhambra Police Department received a robbery alarm from the convenience store, according to Alhambra police Sgt. Jerry Johnson. The suspect was armed with a knife during the robbery.
A witness reportedly saw a man rob the convenience store and tailed the suspect to San Marino High School.
"With the witness' help, the suspect was located in San Marino," the police sergeant said. "As the officers approached, the suspect made furtive movements toward his waistband."
An officer-involved shooting occurred and the suspect fled on foot. He was eventually caught at the high school on Huntington Drive at about 6:35 a.m. Sunday, Johnson said.
No one was hurt in the shooting, according to police.
Bolczak, a transient from the Hemet area, was also booked on possession of prescription painkillers, the Pasadena Star News reported.
He was being held in lieu of $65,000 bail, according to jail records.
