A homeless man was arrested in Woodland after he allegedly attempted to steal copper wire while wielding a machete, causing an employee of the business to retaliate with pepper spray.

Woodland police reported that the owner and an employee of Leyva’s Auto Body Repair Shop, 39608 Kentucky Ave., witnessed a man allegedly stealing copper wire from the business at approximately 2:37 p.m. Thursday.

When the two confronted the thief, he allegedly brandished a machete. Police said the employee, fearing for their safety, used pepper spray on the armed man.

The suspect responded by kicking the employee in the arm and fleeing on a bike. Neither the owner nor employee suffered any injuries from the incident.

The man was later seen biking along East Main Street in Woodland. Officers located and arrested him, identifying him as Larry Vincent Kruletz, 42, on suspicion of robbery.

Kruletz was booked at the Yolo County Jail where he is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.
