Man helped police arrest trespassers


A Sacramento man jumped in to help police catch a trespassing suspect in his neighborhood Tuesday evening.

A police chopper hovered over the 2800 block of 23rd Avenue in south Sacramento looking for at least one suspect. That's when Danny Silva took matters into his own hands.

Silva spotted a man trying to climb over his neighbor's fence. Instead of waiting for police, he chased after the suspect.

"He tried to take off running. I chased him down the street, then around the corner," Silva recalled. "He ends up tripping. So I end up standing over him and tell him to put his hands behind his back, 'you're going to jail.'"

Police then handcuffed the suspect, but the neighborhood wasn't in the all clear.

One of Silva's neighbor's saw another stranger hiding in his backyard.

Loss of Marzipan the Ostrich

Loss of Marzipan the Ostrich

The Sacramento Zoo is mourning the loss of Marzipan, the Zoo’s 21 year-old Ostrich. The morning of July 14th, the Zoo’s male Ostrich was pursuing the female ostriches around the exhibit in typical breeding behavior when Marzipan went to the ground (a normal sign of submission). Once the male was moved off exhibit, keepers noticed that Marzipan seemed unable to stand. Zoo veterinarians and staff were able to anesthetize her on exhibit and then move her to the veterinary hospital for examination. Radiographs revealed a severely comminuted (multiple small fragments) fractured leg bone that could not be repaired. The difficult decision was made to euthanize Marzipan. She was taken to UC Davis for a complete necropsy... Read More
