latest news LAPD officer arrested for kidnapping and assault

A Los Angeles police officer on leave was arrested in Inglewood on Friday on suspicion of kidnapping, criminal threats and assault with a deadly weapon, the Inglewood Police Department confirmed on Monday.

Nicolas Quintanilla Borja, 29, was arrested after officers from Inglewood responded to a radio call about a family disturbance in the 3500 block of West 116th Street at around 5:47 a.m. Friday and interviewed victims and witnesses at the scene, Inglewood police said.

They said QuintanillaBorja identified himself as an off-duty officer of the 77th LAPD Division before being arrested.

The Inglewood department did not provide further details on the incident. QuintanillaBorja could not be reached for comment, and it was not clear on Monday whether he had a lawyer.

The LAPD also confirmed QuintanillaBorja’s arrest and said his police powers had been revoked, although he was still employed by the department. The LAPD referred all other matters to the Inglewood Police Department.

Inglewood Police say QuintanillaBorja was held at Inglewood Prison on $ 2 million bail. Officials said the case was still under investigation.

A spokesperson for LA County Dist. Atty. George Gascón’s office said the case was not presented to prosecutors on Monday afternoon.
