Student threatens girlfriend, police arrest on campus – 2/5/2010

The Foothill-De Anza Police arrested student Ryan Cannon in the campus parking lot on Wednesday, Jan. 27 after he allegedly threatened his ex-girlfriend on the De Anza campus the previous day.

Cannon was wanted by police for threatening the life of his ex-girlfriend and for vandalizing a car she was riding in on Jan. 26.

Campus police attempted to apprehend Cannon after the incident was reported, but were unable to locate him.

Officer Leif Nelson was investigating the case and was responsible for locating the suspect. Cannon was arrested in Lot C around 9:12 a.m. after being spotted by Officer Nelson. Officer Frank Rocha along with Asst. Chief Jim McMahon assisted in the arrest.

“It’s sad to see boyfriend-girlfriend relationships deteriorate to this point,” said Ron Levine, Chief of the Foothill-De Anza Police Department. “Threats and violence are not tolerated under any circumstances. We’re glad that the victim is safe and no longer in danger.”

Cannon is being charged with one felony count of violating Penal Code 422 (criminal threat).
