Police apprehended a woman this morning after she used a hammer to break numerous windows in an Echo Park apartment building in the 1000 block of Bonnie Brae Street near Sunset Boulevard. An LAPD helicopter hovered overhead after the incident that began at about 9:30 a.m. The woman sustained injuries from breaking the windows but no other persons were injured, said Sgt. Michael Mabie with the Rampart Division.
* Update: Officers arrested 60-year-old Mary Shabazian, who lives in the building, reports Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the Rampart Division. Shabazian cut both of her hands after using a hammer to smash the windows of two apartment units. It’s still not clear why she did it. Buhrmester has more details here.
