Officers showed up at the corner of N 16th and McCormack streets just after 9:30 a.m. after someone called 911 and hung up.
At the scene, they found a group of people loitering.
One of them, Collins, was found to be on parolee and was arrested for a violation of it. He is still listed as in custody at Sacramento County Jail as of Wednesday.
