Machete-wielding man arrested at high school
Santa Cruz police arrested a man Tuesday after he allegedly entered a high school with a machete, police said.
According to police, 27-year-old Milton Miller of Santa Cruz went to Natural Bridges High School at 313 Swift St. and entered a classroom with a 13-inch machete.
Officers responded to the scene, placed the school on lockdown and cleared the surrounding area. Officers then located and arrested Miller in the area of West Cliff Drive, police said.
The arrest comes almost two months after Miller was arrested for a similar offense.
On Sept. 20, Miller was seen walking near downtown Santa Cruz with a knife in his hand. When officers confronted him, he allegedly refused their orders and resisted arrest, police said.
He was then arrested on suspicion of multiple offenses, including concealing a concealed dagger.
