Police said Friday they arrested a man who refused to leave the Pacific View mall and allegedly spit in a police officer's face.
Officers received a report about 7:45 p.m. of a man, identified as Nathan Journigan, disturbing and refusing to leave the shopping center at 3301 E. Main St., police said.
Authorities said mall security had warned the man many times not to return.
When police arrived, they contacted the man at the request of security and told him to leave the property. He left the area but was seen a few minutes later entering the mall again, officials said.
Officers located Journigan, 23, in the food court and began escorting him out when he allegedly started resisting and spit in one of the officer's faces.
Police said Journigan also made threats to hurt the officers.

Journigan was taken into custody without further incident and booked into county jail on suspicion of felony resisting arrest, misdemeanor battery on a police officer, making criminal threats and trespassing, authorities said.
