El Centro police have arrested a 25-year-old Imperial man they think is responsible for an armed robbery of an El Centro residence Sunday.
El Centro police Lt. Tim Blankenship said Miguel Angel Ortiz walked into the El Centro Police Department about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday and turned himself in.
Ortiz was wanted for armed robbery, burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and kidnapping.
Police think Ortiz broke into a residence in the 1700 block of Euclid Avenue about 9 p.m. Sunday.
A female resident was awakened by the intruder. The intruder, carrying a knife, tied up the victim with a cable wire and proceeded to burglarize the residence.
A few minutes later, the woman's son arrived as the thief was searching through the kitchen and living room. The son chased the thief out of the residence but was unable to catch him.
