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 Wednesday, 05-17-17 at 5:05 p.m., two subjects, a 35-year old transient male and a 48-year old female from Vallejo, both attempted to pass two fictitious checks at the Bank of America on Gellert Boulevard. Both subjects were arrested.

On Saturday, 05-20-17 at 11:30 p.m., a 40-year old Daly City resident reported he was involved in a road rage incident at the intersection of Geneva Avenue and Schwerin Street. While stopped at the light, he said he exited his vehicle and began yelling at a woman who cut him off with her vehicle. The reporting party said the woman then pepper sprayed him in the eyes and tackled him and left the scene. The victim gave a description of the vehicle, including the license plate, and officers contacted the owner, a 25-year old Daly City resident, who admitted to being involved in the altercation. Neither party requested prosecution.

On Sunday, 05-21-17 at approximately 12:34 a.m., several officers were dispatched to Flournoy Street and San Jose Avenue on a report of an auto vs. parked auto collision with injuries and property damage. The reporting party said an older woman was bleeding from the head and arguing with a younger woman. The reporting party told dispatchers that both females were seen fleeing the scene with two young children. Officers located the subject and her two children at the intersection of Alemany Boulevard and Crystal Street and noted that the subject was not wearing any shoes and had blood splatter on her clothing. The officers were not able to locate the other woman. Officers conducted field sobriety tests on the subject and determined she was under the influence. Her two children, 3 and 5 years old, suffered minor injuries. The subject, a 34-year old San Francisco resident, was arrested for driving under the influence causing bodily injury, hit and run with injury, child cruelty with possible injury, driving with a suspended license and for two outstanding warrants. The children were taken into custody by Child Protective Services.

The subject operates a business called “Crashpad LLC” from his home, in which there are 28 tenants who pay to live inside the residence. The residence consists of seven separate bedrooms with eight bunk beds in one bedroom and four bunk beds in all of the other bedrooms. This case has also been forwarded to the City Attorney and Code Enforcement Division.

On Saturday, 05-27-17 at 1:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to the parking lot of the Home Depot store on a report of a subject harassing customers.

The victim said he yelled at the suspect to give back the merchandise, and the victim said the suspect turned around and had a small black firearm in his hand. Fearing for his life, the suspect ran back to the shopping center. Later, a San Francisco P.D. officer identified the suspect, a 17-year old Pacifica resident, and our officers arrested him for robbery.
