A 19-year-old man was taken into custody Monday morning after an alleged crime spree in which he was suspected of attempting to carjack multiple vehicles before trying to steal a Sheriff's patrol car in Victorville, authorities said.
Daniel Anglin was walking around naked in the middle of the intersection of El Evado and Seneca roads at about 7 a.m. when he allegedly forcibly tried to take the vehicles of two victims on the busy street, according to a news release from the Victorville Police Department.
Part of the rampage was caught on cellphone video by motorist Lydia Lopez, who was with her three children at the time.
Lopez told KTLA the incident began not far from a crowded school bus stop.
The horrified mother watched as another female driver fought with the naked teenager in an effort to keep him from getting into her car.
"I was just hoping, 'Please don't come to my car. Please don't come to my car," Lopez said.
At one point, the nude man stumbled from one side of the street to the other, setting his sights on a white car and trying to fight the driver, the video showed.
"It was actually pretty crazy," she said. "It was really shocking to me."
When deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department arrived at the scene to take him into custody, Anglin allegedly tried to steal their patrol car, officials said in the release.
Authorities used force to take him into custody. Lopez said deputies used a Taser on him, and the video appeared to show he was hit at least once with a nightstick.
Investigators also suspected that Anglin broke into a nearby apartment, the release stated. He fled the location, however, after being confronted by the resident.
He was arrested on suspicion of carjacking, first-degree residential burglary and being under the influence of a controlled substance, the release stated.
Anglin was injured prior to his arrest and treated at a local hospital before being booked into jail.
