CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. —
An elementary school was locked down for about an hour as Alameda County sheriff's deputies pursued a suspect in Castro Valley Tuesday morning, a sheriff's sergeant said.
Sheriff's deputies responded to Proctor Avenue after receiving a report that a suspicious man was looking into cars at about 10:15 a.m., Sgt. J.D. Nelson said.
When deputies arrived at the scene, the man took off running, Nelson said.
Authorities alerted staff at Proctor Elementary School, and the school was locked down as deputies pursued the man, he said.
The man ran through yards of homes before being caught at about 11:15 a.m., Nelson said.
The lockdown was lifted a short time later, he said.
Nelson said the man, whose name has not yet been released, was arrested for a probation violation.
