Crime Alert and Community Update 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 Tuesday, 06-07-16 at 4:26 p.m., Officer Hyink and Officer Murillo were on foot patrol in Lincoln Park when they saw two males—one of whom was consuming an alcoholic beverage. When the officers approached the subject, the subject became upset and began lifting his arms about his shoulders. The officers advised the subject he was violating the municipal code regarding possessing an open alcoholic beverage container and consuming an alcoholic beverage in a city park. The officer saw a black switchblade clipped to the subject’s right front pants pocket when the subject lifted his arms about his shoulders. The officers cited the subject, a 26-year old Daly City resident, for possession of a switchblade.

On Thursday, 06-09-16 at 4:30 p.m., officers placed a 26-year old San Francisco resident under arrest for being a convicted felon in possession of tear gas and for driving on a suspended driver's license. This occurred following a traffic stop in the area of Bayshore Boulevard and Geneva Avenue.

On Friday, 06-10-16 at 2:14 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Shell gas station on Hillside Boulevard on a report of a road rage incident in which the subjects were throwing items at each other and a white SUV ramming another vehicle in the parking lot. Officers contacted the driver of the white SUV which was occupied by six male juveniles between the ages of 13 and 15. (Another juvenile was out of the vehicle at the time.) The subject, a 7th grade math teacher who was taking the juveniles on an unsanctioned school outing to a go-kart racing business, said he was in his vehicle behind a woman in another vehicle who was cleaning her windows. The subject asked the woman to move her vehicle so he could get gas, and he said she said, “Why should I move?” and started yelling profanities at him. The subject said he when he got out to get gas, they continued to argue and yell at each other. The subject said the woman then moved her vehicle in front of his vehicle. The subject said he became upset and threw coffee at her vehicle, and then she, in turn, threw a milkshake at his vehicle, and the milkshake landed inside his vehicle. The subject said he got into his vehicle to leave and hit her vehicle as he was leaving—saying he didn’t have enough room to go around her. When officers spoke with the victim, a 36-year old Broadmoor resident, the victim said she believed there was no doubt that the subject intentionally rammed into her vehicle. The juveniles in the vehicle were unharmed, and officers transported them back to the police station to give statements and to be picked up by their parents. The suspect, a 36-year old San Rafael resident, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and willful cruelty to children.

On Saturday, 06-11-16 at 2:11 p.m., officers were dispatched to a residence on the 400 block of East Market Street on a welfare check. Dispatchers received a call from a male stating there was blood in the bed. Officers arrived to meet the 54-year old caller who appeared to be under the influence of drugs. Officers noted he was incoherent and paranoid saying people were trying to drug and harm him. The officers determined the subject was, indeed, under the influence of a controlled substance and booked him into jail.

On Sunday, 06-12-16 at 6:00 a.m., a 62-year old resident on the 100 block of Westline Drive said someone rang her doorbell multiple times. She said she did not answer right away and then heard someone kicking at her front door. She got up and went to her front window and saw an unknown subject described as an African American male, possibly 25 years old, 6’ tall, 180 pounds, wearing a green hooded sweatshirt with gray pants standing on her porch. The reporting party said she screamed at the suspect, and he said something about being at the wrong house and ran towards an awaiting vehicle only described as a dark gray or brown minivan. The reporting party waited five hours before reporting this.


There was one robbery during the past week.

On Thursday, 06-09-16 at approximately 9:26 p.m., the Smart and Final store was the victim of a robbery by a suspect who brandished a knife towards the assistant manager as she attempted to stop the suspect from leaving the store after he took a package of beef loin top sirloin. The suspect left on foot, and this investigation is continuing.

IRS Scam

On Thursday, 06-07-16 at 1:00 p.m., a 57-year old Daly City resident fell victim to the IRS Scam that continues to plague innocent victims in Daly City (and other cities as well). The victim said he received a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and said if he obtains a $500 Apple gift card, he can make payment with that. The victim purchased the gift card and called back the “IRS” and lost $500 after finding out this was a scam. Please continue to tell others that this is purely a scam. The IRS will NOT call you asking you to pay back taxes with an Apple gift card!!

The “Daly Wire,” the City’s Monthly Electronic Newsletter

In an effort to expand the City’s communications efforts, the City of Daly City has launched a monthly electronic newsletter - the “Daly Wire.” Each issue will feature a range of important topics including events, exploring services and programs, highlighting projects, and providing helpful tips and news. Don’t miss out on all that’s happening in Daly City – please subscribe by visiting

This is a free private social network for you, your neighbors and your community which allows you to talk to your neighbors on line. This, in turn, People use Nextdoor for many reasons: to quickly get the word out about crimes in the area, organize a Neighborhood Watch Group, track down a trustworthy babysitter, find referrals for businesses, looking for lost pets, finding new homes for unwanted items (furniture, bicycles, etc.), and many other reasons. It is very easy to sign up, and I like the fact that the site verifies users by addresses, and it won’t allow people to access to a neighborhood if they don’t actually live there. There is a mobile application, or you can have it sent to your email. Give it a try!
