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, 06-21-16 at approximately 11:23 a.m., several officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Brunswick Street on a report of a potential in-progress auto burglary. The witness described the subjects to the officers, and the officers contacted subjects nearby who matched the description. Two subjects, a 16-year old Daly City resident and a 13-year old San Francisco resident, were arrested for burglary and attempted auto theft.

On Friday, 06-24-16 at approximately 3:21 a.m., Officer B. Shiu was dispatched to the area of Sullivan Avenue and 87th Street on a report of a man down. The reporting party said he was driving by and he saw a man on the ground. He got out of his car to check on him and found that he was having a seizure. The Fire Department and paramedics treated the 41-year old Daly City resident who didn’t remember what happened and transported him to Seton Hospital.

On Saturday, 06-25-16 at 3:34 a.m., Officer Chittenden was dispatched to the area of Polaris Way and Canyon Drive on a report of a female lying in the middle of the street screaming. The officer arrived to find a male and female next to a vehicle on the 200 block of Polaris Way. The female, a 30-year old Daly City resident, said she was having a panic attack and would not answer any of the officer’s questions. The officer smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on her breath and person. The male subject said the female was his girlfriend and they had been arguing about their relationship and did not want to go into any further details. The officer observed that the male subject, a 30-year old South San Francisco resident, was under the influence of alcohol. Both of the subjects were subsequently arrested for disorderly conduct as they were too drunk to care for themselves.

On Sunday, 06-26-16 at 12:47 a.m., Officer McQuade was dispatched to a residence on the unit block of Eastwood Avenue on a report of a loud and unruly house party. The officer saw approximately 10-15 subjects holding red plastic cups standing in the driveway and porch area, and he heard loud hip- hop music. As he walked closer to the residence, he heard someone yell from a microphone from within the residence that the “cops are here!” and to keep it down. The officer contacted a subject who said they were having a party for his 21st birthday, and the subject estimated there were 40-50 people inside the residence. The officer asked to speak with the homeowner, and the homeowner agreed that it was too noisy. Cover officers responded to assist in closing down the party. Two subjects, 25-year olds from Oakland and San Francisco, started causing a disturbance and were ultimately arrested for resisting, obstructing and/or delaying a police officer when they refused to leave the party. The 49-year old homeowner was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor for providing alcoholic beverages to underage party goers.

On Tuesday, 06-21-16 at 12:37 a.m., the Walgreen’s store at Westlake Shopping Center and a store clerk were the victims of a robbery and brandishing of a knife by an unknown suspect who pulled a knife from his pocket after being confronted by the manager for stealing a pair of headphones.

On Tuesday, 06-21-16 at 8:19 p.m., a gas station on John Daly Boulevard and a 19-year old clerk were the victims of a robbery by an unknown suspect who displayed a handgun at the clerk and demanded money. The clerk gave the suspect money, and the suspect demanded to check the till for other cash before leaving on foot. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, early 20’s, 5’7, skinny, goatee, dark eyes and was last seen wearing a black jacket with a hood, white pants and a black backpack.

Community Events/Information

Fireworks in Daly City

Fireworks are illegal in Daly City. This includes the “safe and sane” types that are sold in nearby cities. On the days leading up to each 4th of July, as well as the actual day and after, fireworks are one of the biggest causes of fires and injuries throughout the United States. Let’s keep our City safe and free from any potential disasters. The Daly City Police Department personnel will be on heightened patrol looking for people using fireworks. People in possession of or using any fireworks will be subject to a citation/arrest by an officer. This includes fireworks that are purchased from another city. In California, it is a misdemeanor to possess illegal fireworks. This could be punishable by a fine of not less than $500, and no more than $1,000 or by imprisonment in a county jail for up to one year. The Daly City Police Department takes this very seriously. In addition, parents may be held liable for any damages or injuries caused by their children’s use of illegal fireworks.

Please act responsibly and plan ahead. Information on where firework displays and festivities are located can be found online on sites such as:

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!
