We're told officers were called out to the 7-Eleven located on South Crane Avenue in reference to a subject threatening people with a knife.
When officers arrived, they found a man matching the suspect's description, who was later identified as Garcia.
According to the report, when officers attempted to talk with Garcia, he immediately began running westbound through the north alley of Clements Street.
Garcia was later caught by police and officers found a brown knife lying next to him.
Police said that when they spoke with the victim, they learned that Garcia had chased them around 7-Eleven with the knife yelling, "Killer, Killer, I’m crazy, I'll kill everybody."
