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, 05-01-17 at 11:26 p.m., Officer Pati was on patrol in the area of the on-ramp of 280 south from Sullivan Avenue when he saw a subject standing in the middle of the street.

He was released on a citation.

On Friday, 05-05-17 at approximately 8:42 p.m., Officer Fulmore was dispatched to the parking lot of the Civic Center Plaza on 87th Street on a report of a vehicle on fire.

On Saturday, 05-06-17 at 12:36 p.m., officers were dispatched to an apartment on the 100 block of Eastmoor Avenue on a report of a male subject who was “acting out” inside of an apartment. When officers arrived, they found an elderly female with a head injury sitting in the lobby. The victim said her son had barricaded himself inside of the apartment and was breaking glass. The 78-year old victim said her 54-year old son had not been sleeping and was acting out by pacing and breaking things throughout the apartment. The victim said her son pushed her, causing her to fall and hit her head. The victim said she got out of the apartment, and her son locked her out. Officer Garay, who is certified in Crisis Intervention, responded and attempted to make contact with the son. The subject eventually exited his residence, and officers placed him on a mental evaluation until he was medically cleared to be booked into jail. He was subsequently arrested for elder abuse causing injury, vandalism, and possession of social security cards and identification not belonging to him.

The subject, a 39-year old Daly City resident, was intoxicated and was arrested for battery on an officer(s) and resisting arrest.


There were two robberies and one attempted robbery during the past week.

On Friday, 05-05-17 at 1:10 p.m., a 44-year old Daly City resident came to the station to report a robbery that occurred a few days earlier. The victim said she was leaving her apartment on the 2400 block of Geneva Avenue on 05-02-17 at approximately 3:40 a.m. and was closing the gate when she immediately felt someone forcibly grab her by her backpack and spun her around. She said the suspect pulled her toward the metal grates that are located next to her apartment building and then slammed her upper body against a metal structure which supports a metal staircase. The suspect took a backpack containing one pair of gym shoes and gym clothing. The suspect was described as a black male adult in his mid-40’s, last seen wearing dark colored baggy clothing and ¼” dreadlocks. The suspect ran away eastbound on Geneva Avenue. The officer asked the victim why she waited to report the crime, and she said she was in fear the suspect would return to retaliate. The victim sustained bruising to her shoulder.

On Sunday, 05-07-17 at 9:36 a.m., officers were dispatched to a residence on the 200 block of Miriam Street on a report of an armed robbery via knife. The 24-year old victim said after she parked her vehicle on Santa Barbara Avenue and North Parkview Avenue, she was walking on Miriam Street when she heard footsteps behind her. The victim said she walked up the steps to her residence and when she reached the top, she said she was approached from behind by an unknown suspect who pushed her from behind and held her into the corner of the front door. The victim said she was unable to turn around to see the suspect and felt pressure to her right side and believed it was a knife. The victim said the suspect told her in Spanish, “Give me your wallet, be careful, don’t call police”. The victim said the suspect grabbed her wallet and turned away, walking down the stairs to go northbound on Miriam Street. The victim could only describe the suspect as a Hispanic male adult, 6’0, wearing a plain gray hooded sweater with the hood covering his head. Officers tried looking for the suspect but were unable to locate him.

On Saturday, 05-06-17 at 12:05 p.m., Officer Clinkscales was dispatched to the 3100 block of Geneva Avenue on a report of a man brandishing a knife. The victim, a 31-year old Campbell resident, said he was in the area visiting a friend when he recognized a subject who bought a tent from him in the past who approached him. The subject asked the victim for money because the tent he purchased did not have poles. The victim said he didn’t have enough to pay the suspect and then said the suspect brandished a knife and demanded money. The officer located the subject, a 35-year old Daly City resident, in the area, and he was arrested for brandishing and attempted robbery.

“Google Doc Phishing Scam”

This just started circulating on the internet, and it is worth mentioning. If you receive a link to a Google doc, you may want to do some investigating before clicking on the link. According to “Business Insider”, it will appear as if a contact of yours sent you a Google doc. If you click on the “open in docs link”, it will send spam to “everyone you’ve ever emailed” with a similar phishing e-mail. Google is aware of the problem and is investigating it.

Kops & Kids Day--Save the Date! Saturday, June 17

This event was a lot of fun last year, and we hope you can make it again. Together with the Pacifica Police Department, Colma Police Department, South San Francisco Police Department and the Broadmoor Police Department, we will hold this event once again at the Sea Bowl Bowling Center in Pacifica (4625 Coast Highway, Pacifica) on Saturday, June 17 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Also see police cars and motorcycles, fire trucks, rescue vehicles, police dogs and a helicopter. 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!
