Altadena Sheriff’s deputies talked a distraught man with a knife in the dining area of a local McDonald’s restaurant into surrendering the weapon Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies arrived at the McDonald’s located at the corner of West Woodbury Road and Lincoln Avenue within one minute of receiving the 911 call at about 5 p.m., authorities said.

“We… were able to reason with him,” deputies reported on social media.

The deputies called the Los Angeles County Fire Dept. to the scene after the man surrendered the knife.

The man was transported to a local hospital, deputies said.

There were no injuries during the incident, authorities said.
