Police talked a suspected burglar down from a Venice apartment complex yesterday after negotiating with him for two hours. A man was spotted at an apartment complex near Ocean Front Walk and Washington Blvd. at about 9:30 p.m. last night, according to CBS LA. LAPD and LAFD responded, as well as a police helicopter that lit up the scene.

Authorities negotiated with the man as he stood on a balcony on the third floor. At about 11:30 p.m., the man came down and police took him to get a mental health evaluation.
