A Huntington Beach business owner wrestled down a burglary suspect who allegedly attempted to stab him with a screwdriver until police arrived Sunday.

Police arrested Randall Sebreros, 50, of Buena Park, on suspicion of burglary and assault with a deadly weapon. Sebreros pleaded not guilty to the charges Tuesday, according to court records.

The owner of a lawn mower repair shop and his wife noticed several people inside their closed shop as they drove around town at 8:11 p.m. Sunday, said Lt. Russell Reinhart. About three or four men had allegedly broken through the store's locked door in an attempted burglary.

The wife called 911 as the suspects made a run for it. The business owner managed to get a hold of Sebreros and stop him from getting away.

Sebreros allegedly attempted to stab the man with a screwdriver he was holding multiple times as the two wrestled, but police arrived before any damage was done.

He is being held at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange for $52,500 bail, according to Orange County Sheriff's Department records.

Sebreros' maximum sentence is four years and eight months in state prison. He is expected to appear in court for pre-trial Tuesday at the West Justice Center in Westminster.
