On Monday, January 15, 2018, at approximately 11:07 a.m., Deputy Moon from the Highland Police Department was conducting a pro-active patrol in the area of Sterling Ave and 13th Street. Moon observed Marcelino Bravo riding a bicycle westbound on 13th Street near Sterling Avenue. Moon recognized Bravo from previous contacts and knew Bravo was on active San Bernardino County Felony Probation. Deputy Moon attempted to contact Bravo to conduct a probation compliance check. However, Bravo fled on foot.

Bravo ran through several yards and jumped over multiple fences in an attempt to elude deputies. With the assistance of additional deputies from the Highland Police Department, Central Station and Sheriff's Aviation Division, Bravo was located and taken into custody. Bravo was arrested for PC 148(a)(1) - Obstructing/Resisting Arrest. The San Bernardino County Probation Department was contacted and issued a no-bail hold on Bravo for PC 1203.2 - Probation Violation.

During the incident, Moon recognized a second suspect in the area, Xavier Mancha. Deputy Moon knew Mancha to be on active CDC Parole and had an active no bail warrant for PC 3056 - Parole Violation. Mancha was arrested for his active warrant. After Mancha was taken into custody, he was searched and found to have a fixed blade knife concealed in a pocket of his jeans, in violation of PC 21310.

Bravo and Mancha were both booked into the Central Detention Center for their charges.
