Police said a woman throwing items inside a gas station retail area struggled with officers who were called to the scene before she could be detained Tuesday afternoon.

Pasadena Police Lt. William Grisafe said workers at the Shell station on the busy southeast corner of Fair Oaks Avenue and Walnut Street called for police at about 3:30 p.m.

A passerby who saw the altercation contacted Pasadena Now to express concern the woman is pregnant and was treated roughly by officers.

Grisafe said police saw nothing to indicate the suspect is pregnant or was injured.

He said the unnamed woman was detained and transported to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation.
