He was detained by arriving officers on a nearby street. Loss prevention positively identified the suspect and he was arrested. 

Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol – Suspects Arrested
During the evening of June 13 and early morning hours of June 14, officers stopped five separate vehicles for driving under the influence of alcohol in the city. The drivers were arrested and taken into custody.
The Monrovia Police Department would like to remind the public of the danger and consequences of driving under the influence. Not only are you putting your life in danger, but you put the life of others in danger when you choose to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. If you see a driver that appears to be driving under the influence, call 911 and report their location to police.

The suspect had fled in a vehicle, but was apprehended by officers on the 605 Freeway at Arrow Highway. Officers arrived at the residence and discovered that a 13-year-old female had been strangled by her father, after he became upset with her for not helping with housework. The child sustained injuries. The father was arrested for child abuse and taken into custody. Paramedics responded and examined the child and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services was notified.
