ARDEN, Calif. - The search for a man suspected of beating up a woman prompted a brief lockdown at three schools in the Arden-Arcade area Monday.
According to Sharon Chow of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a report of a man beating up a woman on the side of the road near Trussel Way and Morse Ave. around 11:45 a.m.
When deputies arrived, the man took off running into a nearby apartment complex, said Chow.
Deputies set up a perimeter around the complex to search for the man.
Nearby St. Ignatius School, Arden Middle School and Thomas Edison Elementary School were all placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure while the man remained at large, said Chow.
A parent of a child at General Davie Primary Care said their preschool was also placed on lockdown.
The man was located and detained at 12:38 p.m., and the school lockdowns were lifted.
