  1. Cypress PD posted on their Facebook that this is related to an assault investigation and search warrant. There were 9 police vans that I was able to see this morning and someone on Facebook said they could hear helicopters at 3AM – is there any additional information?

    1. Cypress Resident,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to respond to our article about the incident at Casa Grande Apartments.

      We have spoken with the Cypress Police Department. A spokesman is at this time writing up a news release for us. Once we receive that, we will immediately update this article.

      The good news is that the incident was swiftly contained, competently handled, and no one was badly injured.

      More soon!

      1. Good to know. I live in the apartment building right next to the one that this was all happening at. Now I am curious to what was going on. You normally see one or 2 cops a month come in there to talk a bit to someone in the apartments and then they leave.
        Speaking Of which there was a sheriff on Friday i believe when i got home from work. Maybe related. Heck I didn’t even know Cypress had this many squad cars haha Normally do not ever see them. Good to know they are very quick to respond.

  2. Yes, please keep us posted. We were evacuated this morning and have no idea what’s going on.

    1. That is a shame. No way to be woken up. Which building was it in? The first or the 3rd? Pretty crazy.
