Englewood police report
Clayton area sealed off
About 2 p.m. May 11, Englewood police officers and firefighters sealed off the area around Clayton Elementary because there was a man on the roof of the school who refused to come down.
A neighbor called to report seeing someone on the roof. Police investigated and, when the suspect refused to come down, the decision was made to block off the area until the individual came down.
Eventually, the man was convinced to come off the roof. He was uninjured but the routine checks on him found there was an active warrant for his arrest for parole violation.
He was taken to the Arapahoe County jail on the warrant. He was also issued a municipal summons for trespassing.
Drug lab discovered
About 11 p.m. May 9, Englewood police officers and members of the city’s SWAT team assisted members of the Arapahoe County Impact Team serving a search warrant on a house in the 3500 block of South Bannock Street.
Serving the search warrant, investigators found an active methamphetamine lab in the house and arrested two men. Members of the Englewood Police Department and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office assisted the county impact team in cleaning up the drug-making facility.
The investigation is continuing.

Man with knife arrested

Police were called about 4:30 p.m. May 9 to investigate a disturbance.
When officers arrived, a 34-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman told them a 63-year-0ld man had threatened them with a knife.
The victims said they had driven the wrong way down a parking lane, which apparently made the suspect angry.

The victims said he opened the knife and held it at hip level with the blade pointed toward the man and woman. The victims also told officers the 63-year-old was yelling and cursing at them and they were afraid the suspect was going to cut them with the knife.
Officer arrested the suspect. He was taken to the Arapahoe County jail and could face charges of felony menacing.
