A man suspected of arson was arrested Monday at a Metro station in the Westlake area of Los Angeles.

Police located the man near the Westlake/MacArthur Park station at about 1:30 p.m. and took him into custody, according to Officer William Cooper of the Los Angeles Police Department Media Relations Division.

The man was “taken into custody for an incident that happened a previous day,” Cooper said, though no further details were available.

The man’s name was not released.

Metro announced at 1:40 p.m. that the B Line train would skip the Westlake/MacArthur Park station due to the police activity in the area. The trains resumed normal service at about 2:20 p.m.
