A man with a loaded pistol was arrested outside the main entrance to Disneyland last month after another park visitor reported seeing something suspicious, Anaheim police revealed Tuesday.

Just before 9 p.m. on July 9, officers assigned to the resort property received a radio call from Disneyland security regarding a report of a man with a gun, according to police spokesman Eric Trapp.

Plain clothes detectives went to investigate and located a man with a handgun in the esplanade area of the resort, Trapp said. The esplanade is the open area that divides the entrances to Disneyland and California Adventure once patrons pass through security.

The man was identified as 44-year-old Percival Aguilar Agoncillo of San Francisco.

Agoncillo was never inside either park, Trapp said.

In the course of the investigation, it was determined that Agoncillo was on probation for a similar offense in San Mateo County, according to Trapp.

Agoncillo was booked and released on $20,000 bail.

He was due back in court for his arraignment on Aug. 27.
