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, 05-29-17 at approximately 8:42 p.m., Officer Todaro and Officer Perdomo were dispatched to an apartment on the unit block of Coronado Avenue on a report of an unknown subject looking through the window and knocking on the door of the reporting party’s apartment.
