He later lift the cloth off the table he was hiding under, and tell the present family members something. The family ran from the room and alerted police outside. Farinas was arrested, he reportedly kicked an officer in the face as he was put into the patrol car.

The barbershop owner Laura Rodriguez said they were alerted of a suspect on the loose, but they had no idea he was hiding inches away from them.
