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, 05-09-17 at 8:30 p.m., Officer Murillo and Officer Clinkscales were working an auto burglary suppression detail near the In N Out restaurant (a site where numerous auto burglaries have occurred) and saw a vehicle with no headlights on that did not come to a complete stop at the intersection of 92nd Street and Sullivan Avenue. Officer Clinkscales asked the driver and passenger if they had anything in the vehicle that they should know about, and the driver stated he had a gun he owned in his backpack. The officer found a Glock 9mm firearm, as well as a fully loaded magazine (31 rounds) inside the backpack. The subjects said they were in the area to visit girls they knew near In N Out. The driver, a 23-year old Hayward resident, was arrested for possession of a concealed firearm in a vehicle, possession of a large capacity magazine and for an outstanding warrant from Napa County. The passenger, a 23-year old San Francisco resident, was released.

On Wednesday, 05-10-17 at approximately 10:29 p.m., a 42-year old San Francisco resident was the victim of an assault with a deadly weapon via knives and attempted robbery by a 24-year old Richmond resident and a 21-year old San Francisco resident. This occurred at the El Camino Inn on Mission Street. The victim, a hotel clerk, said one of the subjects came to the night window and wanted to rent a room. The subject gave the clerk an identification card that didn’t match his description, and the clerk would not accept the identification. The clerk said the subject became upset and left, screeching his tires as he was leaving. The victim left the desk and ran after the vehicle to confront the subject about screeching his tires. As the victim knocked on the window of the vehicle, he said another subject exited the vehicle and came after him with knives, swinging them as both of the subjects advanced toward him. The victim said one subject punched him in the face and believed he was going to be robbed. The victim’s wife came outside called the police. Other officers found the vehicle matching the description at Alemany and Sickles Street in San Francisco. The subjects were positively identified by the victims, and they were arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit a crime, impersonate to make another liable, misappropriation of lost property and for possession of stolen property.
On Thursday, 05-11-17 at approximately 2:20 p.m., a 10-year old South San Francisco resident was found to be in possession of a black BB gun on school grounds at the Susan B. Anthony School. The student was suspended from school and released to his father, pending prosecution.

On Friday, 05-12-17 at 1:22 p.m., a 16-year old student pulled the fire alarm at Westmoor High School while school was in session, causing more than 1,600 students and staff to temporarily evacuate the school. Subsequently the student was found to be in possession of marijuana, via cannabis oil in a smoking instrument (“vape pen”), on school grounds. The student was placed under arrest and released to his mother pending prosecution.

On Friday, 05-12-17 at 2:30 p.m., Officer Chittenden was dispatched to a residence on the unit block of West Cavour Street on a report of a noise complaint. The reporting party said his neighbor was playing drums excessively loud and that this was an ongoing issue. The reporting party wanted the subject cited. The officer noted the noise was excessively loud—hearing it from approximately five houses away from the subject’s house. The officer cited the subject, a 34-year old Daly City resident, for a noise ordinance violation.

On Sunday, 05-14-17 at 5:45 p.m., Officer Taylor was dispatched to the area of Lake Merced Boulevard and Belmar Avenue on the report of an off-duty San Francisco police officer following a stolen vehicle that was wanted in connection with multiple burglaries. Officer Taylor pulled in front of the suspect vehicle, and the driver jerked the vehicle forward and collided with the front bumper of the patrol car. Officer Taylor re-positioned his vehicle so that if the suspect vehicle pulled forward again, the impact would be minimal, but the suspect then pulled forward again and side-swiped Officer Taylor’s patrol vehicle. The driver then sped away and side-swiped another patrol car driven by Officer Chittenden. A pursuit ensued, and Officer Taylor saw debris fly from the suspect vehicle, as well as white smoke—leading him to believe the vehicle may have collided with another vehicle. The vehicle soon became disabled and came to a stop on Lake Merced Boulevard and Winston Drive in San Francisco. The suspect, a 26-year old San Francisco resident, was subsequently arrested for assault with a deadly weapon (vehicle) on a peace officer, possession of a burglary tool, possession of a controlled substance, hit and run collision, being under the influence of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), driving under the influence of a drug, and driving with a suspended driver's license.
