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, 06-10-19 at 12:15 a.m., Officer Hart was dispatched to the intersection of Midvale Drive and Del Prado Drive on a report of an altercation between a brother and a sister in which someone was sprayed with bear mace. Officer Hart met with a male and a female, who were later determined to be adopted siblings. The male subject, a 20-year old Pacifica resident, was frantic and bleeding from his arms from apparent bite wounds. The subject was also holding a large canister of bear mace which he handed to the officer saying the female sprayed he and his friend with it. The female, a 28-year old Daly City resident, said her brother had invited someone over to her house and she did not like her brother’s friend. An argument broke out between the brother and sister, which resulted in the sister spraying the brother and his friend, a 25-year old Daly City resident, with the bear mace and the sister biting her brother’s arm. The female was arrested for assault with a caustic chemical and battery upon a person.

On Tuesday, 06-11-19 at approximately 8:46 p.m., an 18-year old South San Francisco resident was the victim of assault with a deadly weapon, strong arm robbery and criminal conspiracy by several suspects. A 17-year old Daly City resident was booked into the Youth Services Center, and an 18-year old South San Francisco resident was booked into the San Mateo County jail. This investigation is continuing. This occurred after several officers were dispatched to a fight at Verducci Drive and King Drive.

This past week, two more Daly City residents were the victims of the “social security” scam. I’ve mentioned this scam several times in these bulletins. Both of these victims were told their social security numbers were used in crimes, and the only way for the social security number to be cleared was to purchase various cards to use the funds to clear up the social security account. Please spread the word that this is a scam!


There was one robbery during the past week.

On Saturday, 06-15-19 at 6:40 a.m., Officer Greene was dispatched to the area of Mission Street and Crocker Avenue on a report of an assault that just occurred. Officer Green contacted a 62-year old female at the laundromat who said she and her husband were just attacked by a male who punched her in the back of the head and her husband in the face. The suspect then stole clothing that belonged to them. As the suspect walked out of the laundromat with the victim’s clothing, he was confronted by the 65-year old male victim. During the confrontation, the suspect choked the male around the neck, causing him not to be able to breathe. The victim’s wife said when she tried to stop the suspect from attacking her husband, the suspect hit her with a closed fist once in the back of the head, and once on the side of her head. The victim said she began running northbound on Mission Street towards her home so that she could call 911. Officer Collins found the suspect, a 21-year old San Francisco resident, in the area, and he was booked for robbery and elder abuse.

Car Accident Scam

On Saturday, 06-15-19 at 11:00 a.m., an 87-year old Daly City resident received a phone call from an unknown phone number. The male caller told the victim that her grandson was in a very bad car accident with a Canadian diplomat, and her grandson was arrested. The male told her in order to help her grandson, she needed to send $3,200. The caller told the victim to go to the bank, withdraw cash and go to Home Depot and purchase three $1,000 cards. The male told the caller that he would pay the remaining $200 himself. The victim obtained the cash and cards and waited for the male to call her. The male then told her to scratch off the back of the card to reveal the hidden code numbers and told her to read them to him. The caller instructed the victim to destroy the cards. The victim called her son and told him what happened, and the victim found out she was scammed. The victim said she received two more calls from the same unknown number.

Personal Shopper Scam

On Thursday 06-13-19, a 22-year old Daly City resident reported that she received an email sent to her San Francisco State University email address which appeared to be endorsed by the school (a logo of the school was on the email). The email offered an employment opportunity to be a “personal shopper” and that the victim would receive a check at her residence. The victim was then directed to deposit the check at her local bank and immediately purchase specific gift cards from a CVS drug store. The victim said she received a check for $1,500 and deposited it in her bank and purchased $1,500 worth of gift cards at CVS. The victim said she sent photographs of the scratched off gift cards to an 800-phone number. The victim then was advised to send an additional $100 via Zelle to an email address. The victim said a few days later she received a check for $2,000, but she was notified by her bank that the first check she deposited was fraudulent. The victim then realized she was scammed. This very same scam also occurred on the same date to an 18-year old Daly City resident who also reported she was also scammed out of $1,500.
