Harlingen resident Leroy Cortez was arrested after police said he and his juvenile brother took merchandise from Mervyn’s without paying and threatened a Mervyn’s security officer Monday, according to a police report.
The two brothers and another man went into the store at Valle Vista Mall and a security officer saw the boy hide a T-shirt in his shorts, the report states.
Cortez saw his brother conceal the shirt and didn’t attempt to stop him, the report states.
They then walked out of the store without paying and security officers confronted the group, according to the report.
The boy pulled a knife out of his right front pants pocket and turned on the security officers, and Cortez told the security guards to leave his brother alone, the police report states.
The juvenile put the knife inside his pocket when he saw police arrive, according to the report.
Police arrested the brothers and took them to the Harlingen jail, the report states.
While the juvenile was being transported to the Darrel B. Hester Juvenile Detention Center, he was able to move his cuffed hands toward the front of his body, and police and the boy were involved in a brief struggle when they took him out of the car, the report states.
