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, 06-03-19 at 3:00 a.m., Officer Todaro was dispatched to the post office on Sullivan Avenue on a report of a transient male walking around the secured area that is not open to the public. Officer Todaro contacted a subject in the loading dock area. The subject stated he was a Federal employee; however, he was not. The subject, a 46-year old Belmont resident, was actually on parole for assault with a deadly weapon. The subject’s parole agent authorized a parole hold based upon the subject’s conduct, and the subject was arrested.

On Tuesday, 06-04-19 at 1:52 p.m., Officer Taylor and several other officers were dispatched to the Serramonte Shopping Center on a report of a subject who was wearing a three-foot sword on his side. Officer Taylor saw the subject at the bus stop approximately 30 feet away and said the object appeared to be a sword in a sheath. As Officer Taylor neared the subject, he could see the object was made of solid wood and attached to a leather band clipped to his pants. Officer Taylor arrested the 26-year old Daly City resident for possession of a “Billy club”.

On Tuesday, 06-04-19 at 11:10 p.m., Officer McCarthy attempted to conduct a traffic stop of a vehicle at Schwerin Street and Geneva Avenue. The dispatcher advised the officer that the vehicle was stolen in San Francisco. The driver of the vehicle did not yield to the officer’s emergency lights and siren, and a short pursuit was initiated, lasting for a little over a mile. The pursuit concluded after the driver collided into a bus stop in San Francisco. The occupants of the vehicle opened their doors and started running away from the scene. Officer Dhaliwal assisted in the foot pursuit, and they detained the driver, a 39-year old San Francisco resident. They arrested the subject for vehicle theft, possession of a stolen vehicle, evading with disregard for safety, obstructing a police officer and for being in possession of a controlled substance.

On Wednesday, 06-05-19 at 6:08 p.m., Officer Digiacomo was dispatched to the front counter of the police station on a report of found property. The reporting party, a 23-year old Daly City resident, said at 5:40 that afternoon, he was in front of his residence on the 500 block of Sylvan Street, when he was approached by a subject who asked for money in exchange for gold jewelry. The reporting party said the subject explained that he had just lost his wallet and needed money for gas and pulled out a handful of gold jewelry and placed it into his hand. The reporting party said the subject asked for $1,000. The reporting party told the subject he couldn’t give him $1,000 but said he would help with a little gas money. The reporting party said he consulted his father about the matter, and his father advised him to give back all the jewelry and told him not to exchange any money with the subject. The reporting party gave all the gold jewelry back to the suspect and told him he couldn’t help him. The reporting party said as he was doing that, a gold ring fell onto the ground, but the subject left quickly because he noticed a police officer was driving by at the time. The reporting party said the subject got into a white Range Rover SUV and left the area, leaving the ring behind on the ground. The reporting party could only describe the suspect as a Middle Eastern male, 40-50 years old, who told the reporting party he was from Saudi Arabia.

On Friday, 06-07-19 at 12:34 a.m., Officer Lizana was dispatched to the 100 block of South Mayfair Avenue on a report of a person who broke into a Ford Ranger. The reporting party, a Westlake security officer, described the subject as a white male adult in his 20’s and wearing a cowboy hat. Officer Lizana contacted a subject matching the description who was in front of the Mattress Firm store. Officer Shoopman arrived on scene with the security officer who positively identified the subject as the one he saw breaking into a vehicle. Officer Lizana arrested the subject, a 32-year old San Francisco resident, for auto burglary, vandalism, possession of drug paraphernalia and for a misdemeanor warrant.

On Friday, 06-07-19 at 7:07 p.m., Officer Greene was dispatched to the Safeway store on a report of a subject who was harassing employees and threatening to beat them. The reporting party said the subject grabbed someone’s chicken wings out of his hand and walked out of the store. The reporting party provided a description of the subject, and Officer Cain saw a subject matching the description who was sitting inside the Panda Express restaurant. When Officer Greene arrived at the restaurant, he said the subject walked out of the store. Officer Greene yelled out for the subject to stop, and the subject started to skip away from the officer. This resulted in the subject running away from Officer Greene and Officer Cain. When they got towards Starbuck’s, Officer Greene saw the subject throw a glass on the sidewalk, causing the object to shatter. After running in a serpentine pattern, the officers were finally able to detain the subject. Officer Greene subsequently arrested the 37-year old transient subject for obstructing a police officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and destroying evidence.

The vehicle made a sharp right turn and traveled up and over an approximate 20’ wide embankment. The officer attempted to catch up the vehicle as it continued at a high rate of speed, as the car went through several stop signs, traveling up to between 60 and 90 miles per hour. The vehicle finally came to a stop at John Daly Boulevard near Junipero Serra Boulevard. The driver, a 29-year old Oakland resident, was cited for reckless driving, and his vehicle was towed.
