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 Monday, 03-27-17 at 6:10 p.m., a 19-year old Daly City resident was the victim of an indecent exposure by an unknown subject who walked towards her while exposing and holding his penis. This occurred while the victim was walking into Westmoor Park from Edgemont Drive.

On Tuesday, 03-28-17 at midnight, during the course of his duties, a 31-year old paramedic was kicked in the face by a 27-year old South San Francisco resident who was being medically treated. This occurred in the emergency room at Seton Medical Center. The subject was arrested for public intoxication and battery on an emergency personnel officer.

On Tuesday, 03-28-17 at 12:00 p.m., a 12-year old Pollicita Middle School student was caught by school authorities on campus of being in possession of suspected marijuana. This was the third time the student had been caught in possession of marijuana. The student was reprimanded and released to his mother at the scene. Action is pending from the Youth Guidance Center.

On Wednesday, 03-29-17 at 2:30 p.m., a 12-year old Daly City resident said she was walking home from school on the 100 block of Mariposa Avenue when she passed by a subject standing by a vehicle that an open trunk. The victim said she attempted to walk by the subject, and he moved in front of her and blocked her path. She said the subject suddenly grabbed her left arm, pulled her closer to him, and said, “Come here!” The victim said as she attempted to pull away, the suspect pulled down his pants and exposed his penis to her. The victim said she punched the subject’s face and quickly ran home. The victim described the vehicle as a gold mid-2000’s Toyota Camry. This case has been forwarded to investigators. The subject in the indecent exposure case reported on 03-27-17 is most likely the same subject in this case.

On Friday, 03-31-17 at 12:00 p.m., Officer Taylor was dispatched to the McDonald’s on Geneva Avenue on a report of a homeless subject who was standing in the drive-thru lane refusing to leave. The manager said the subject was pulling garbage from the receptacles and throwing it on the ground. The manager said she told the subject to leave, and the subject swore at her. Officer Taylor saw the subject a short distance away from the restaurant and attempted to speak with him. The subject became hostile, and the officer called for backup. The 62-year old subject was eventually arrested for resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia (a pipe) and failure to register as a sex offender with three previous violations for that offense.

On Friday, 03-31-17 at 10:54 p.m., officers were called to the Century 20 Theaters to assist security with an intoxicated subject. After officers conducted tests to determine the level of the subject’s intoxication, they arrested the subject, a 32-year old Redwood City resident, for being drunk in public as well as for delaying a peace officer in the performance of his/her duties.

On Saturday, 04-01-17 at 7:06 p.m., officers were dispatched to a business on the unit block of Hillcrest Drive. The reporting party said her son had hit her and was breaking property inside of her business. The son, a 20-year old Hayward resident, said he and his mother were involved in an argument because she would not give him his money and luggage containing personal items that she was holding for him. The 56-year old mother said she wanted her son to leave because he always visits her place of business and causes problems. The reporting party said this time the son closed and locked the door to prevent her from leaving. She said she tried leaving several times, but her son physically prevented her from leaving by pushing her back into the business. The victim said her son then pushed her to the ground and punched her on top of her head with a closed fist. Officers arrested the son for false imprisonment with violence, battery on a person and damage to wireless communication (telephone). The victim was checked out by fire department personnel and was only observed to have a cut to her wrist. The victim also obtained an emergency restraining order from her son.

• Pacific Islands Together 4th Annual “Shine Family Day”—Saturday, May 20 is a free private social networking website for your neighborhood. This private network ensures that only those who live in your neighborhood can join; users must go through a verification process. Neighbors ask each other for business recommendations; help in locating missing pets; discuss relevant local government issues; or connect for 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. Please note: the City of Daly City and/or the Police Department cannot see what residents post—we are only allowed to post information. There is also a mobile application, or you can have it sent to your e-mail. Give it a try!
