Officers responded to a report of a disturbance at a business in the 700 block of East Broadway Boulevard where an intoxicated man left the store walking with a young child. Officers located the man, walking with a dog and child, near Fifth Street and Marvin Avenue. As they attempted to issue him a trespass warning from the business, he began yelling at the child in an aggressive manner. It appeared he was going to cause physical harm to the child.
