Crime Alert Bulletin

When I mention “the unit block” of a street, this means the incident occurred at an address anywhere between 1 and 99 of the street.

Notable Cases

On Monday, 05-20-19 at approximately 1:12 a.m., two subjects, a 43-year old South San Francisco resident and a 29-year old Daly City resident, were arrested for making a false police report after calling the Police Department and Fire Department, saying one of the subjects was assaulted and robbed.

(The subjects were captured on video surveillance footage breaking into a victim’s vehicle, taking a suitcase and backpack.)

Officer Graner saw a subject matching the description who was hiding behind a bush in the center median of Callan Boulevard. Officer Graner yelled at the subject to stop, and the subject took off running. The subject finally stopped on Southgate Avenue.
