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, 05-27-19 at 2:50 a.m., Officer Hart was on patrol in the area of Mission Street and Templeton Street looking for a subject on a bicycle who was reported to be checking door handles of parked vehicles in the neighborhood. Officer Hart saw a subject sitting on a bench with a bicycle nearby him at the bus stop at Mission Street and Goethe Street. Officer Hart saw a backpack next to the subject, and when he approached the subject, he said the subject swept his hand across the top of the backpack, pushing an item to the ground. Officer Hart heard a distinct sound of glass breaking, and he shined his flashlight onto the ground and saw a glass pipe. Before the officer could retrieve the item, he said the subject intentionally stomped down on the pipe and used his foot to push the glass underneath the bus stop bench. The subject was on parole for burglary, and Officer Hart searched the subject. The subject had methamphetamine in his possession, as well as property (tax papers) not belonging to him. Officer Hart arrested the subject, a 37-year old Oakland resident, for destroying evidence, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and misappropriation of lost property.

On Wednesday, 05-29-19 at 3:29 a.m., Officer Shoopman and Officer McCarthy were dispatched to a call of a lady kicking the door of an apartment on the unit block of Poncetta Drive. A 28-year old Los Angeles resident was subsequently arrested for residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism after she forcibly broke the front door and threw a ceramic coffee mug at her 22-year old sister’s face, causing a laceration to her lip. The suspect also punched her other sister, a 25-year old Los Angeles resident, in her face two times. This occurred after all the subjects returned from a bar after a graduation celebration.

On Thursday, 05-30-19 at 9:55 p.m., Officer Moody was dispatched to a non-injury collision in the area of Hickey Boulevard and Gellert Boulevard. The parties exchanged information, but one of the drivers was reported as possibly being under the influence of alcohol. Officer Moody saw the vehicle in question driving in the area with the hazard lights on and no blinkers when the car had made turns. Officer Moody conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle on the 300 block of Gellert Boulevard and immediately noticed the subject was slurring his words and smelled of alcohol. The officer conducted field sobriety tests on the subject, and the subject failed to complete them satisfactorily. The subject, a 69-year old Pacifica resident, was arrested for driving under the influence.

On Friday, 05-31-19 at 10:27 p.m., Officer Todaro was dispatched to the area of Hickey Boulevard and Longford Drive on a report of a subject who was playing loud music from his vehicle and yelling racial slurs. Lt. Brennan arrived prior to Officer Todaro, and Officer Todaro could hear on the police radio a subject yelling at Lt. Brennan. Officer Todaro arrived on the scene and saw that the subject had positioned himself directly facing Lt. Brennan. The subject was in a fighting stance and was constantly moving around and speaking rapidly—exhibiting signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance. The subject, a 48-year old South San Francisco resident, was arrested for resisting a peace officer and for being under the influence of a controlled substance. Officer Todaro was examined by a doctor for an injury he suffered to his hand.

On Saturday, 06-01-19 at 1:19 a.m., subsequent to a call regarding a subject who was damaging a sign at the Pentecostal Missionary Church on Mission Street, Officer Greene arrested a 23-year old Daly City resident for resisting/obstructing a police officer and for public intoxication.

On Saturday, 06-01-19 at 6:44 pm., a loss prevention officer for DSW was the victim of an assault with a deadly weapon after she confronted a customer for stealing shoes. The 22-year old victim said earlier in the evening, a subject exited the store while holding a large bag/purse that set off the security sensors. The loss prevention officer reviewed the CCTV footage and saw that the suspect selected shoes throughout the store, placed the shoes in a bag and left the store without paying for the shoes. About an hour later, the loss prevention officer said the same suspect walked back into the store. The manager asked the subject to leave the store because of the earlier theft. The subject became argumentative, claiming she didn’t steal anything. The loss prevention officer intervened and told the suspect she was not allowed in the store and told her to leave the property. The subject became increasingly angry and yelled, saying they had no proof she had stolen anything. The victim advised her it was on video and retrieved her cell phone, saying she was going to call the police. The victim said the suspect then slapped at the cell phone before punching her in the mouth with her right fist. The loss prevention officer said they then “squared up” in fighting stances before the suspect started walking out of the store. The victim said the suspect then picked up a tall chair with metal legs and threw it at the victim and fled the store. The victim avoided being hit by the chair but suffered a slight swelling to her lip.

On Sunday, 06-02-19 at 12:30 a.m., officers were dispatched to a call regarding a man with a knife at the In N Out restaurant on Washington Street. The reporting party, a 23-year old Lyft driver from Sacramento, said he picked up a rider in Daly City and said the subject had been drinking and instructed the driver to make right and left turns with no indication of where he intended to go. The driver said he ended up in downtown San Francisco and turned around to start driving back to Daly City. The driver said he asked the customer if he wanted to get food, and the customer agreed. The driver changed lanes to get off of the freeway, and the subject demanded the driver to stay on the freeway. The driver exited the freeway anyway, and the subject then removed a knife from his pants pocket and told the driver, “Don’t get yourself in trouble”. The driver said the subject had pointed the knife at him when he made the statement as he drove to the In N Out restaurant. The subject, a 25-year old Pacifica resident, was still in the parking lot of the In N Out restaurant and was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and possession of cocaine. The Lyft driver was not physically injured.

On Sunday, 06-02-19 at 2:15 a.m., Officer Cain and Officer Chow were dispatched to the corner of Ocean Grove Avenue and Southgate Avenue on the report of a vehicle vs. a parked vehicle collision, and the male driver was unresponsive. Officer Cain woke up the driver, a 31-year old Daly City resident, and conducted field sobriety tests. The subject was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
