A man wanted on attempted murder and other felony charges in Monterey County was behind bars Wednesday following his arrest in a child annoyance case in Fullerton.
Police were called just before 10 a.m. Tuesday to the 300 block of North Pomona Avenue after getting calls about a transient touching children at a park “inappropriately” with a plastic flower, according to Fullerton police Sgt. Kathryn Hamel.
The children were using a Pokemon game app on their phones when Jacob Kells allegedly interrupted their activity, Hamel said.
Kells, 39, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor child annoyance and police later learned he was wanted on multiple charges, including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, assaulting and resisting a peace officer, possession of a stolen vehicle and felony evading causing great bodily injury, Hamel said.
He was being held in Orange County Jail as authorities work to extradite him to Monterey County, Hamel said.
