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, 08-23-17 at 8:05 a.m., Officer Perdomo was dispatched to the 1600 block of Edgeworth Avenue on a report of a theft from the model homes construction site. The superintendent said two units were equipped with several appliances and noticed the both microwaves were missing. The superintendent did not notice any forced entry and said that subcontractors enter and exit the model homes constantly. Later that evening, the reporting party called Officer Perdomo and said he located a “Craigslist” ad for the exact model microwave stolen from the construction site. The officer checked the phone number offered on the ad, and determined the phone number belonged to a subject who was on search and seizure court probation. Officers went to his residence in Broadmoor the next day, and they found the 34-year old subject hiding in his closet in his room. The microwave listed on the ad was in the garage. The other residents of the house were unsure of how the microwave arrived. Officer Perdomo was able to find out who bought the other microwave, and it was located in San Francisco. The subject was arrested for commercial burglary and possession of stolen property.

On Wednesday, 08-23-17 at 4:18 p.m., Officer Cain conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle containing four occupants at John Daly Boulevard and Lake Merced Boulevard. The driver, a 23-year old Pacifica resident, was on probation for burglary, and there was a search and seizure clause. Officer Digiacomo arrived to assist while Officer Cain searched the vehicle. After finding a replica firearm (an air soft gun) from underneath the passenger seat of the vehicle and also a window punch in the glovebox, Officer Cain placed the driver under arrest. Finishing his search of the vehicle, Officer Cain found two rifles which were determined to be pellet guns in the trunk. The driver was arrested for possession of burglary tools, contributing to the delinquency of a minor (two of the occupants of the vehicle were 17 years old) and for a probation violation.

On Thursday, 08-24-17 at 2:10 p.m., officers arrested a 37-year old Daly City resident for burglary and embezzlement after embezzling over $30,000 from the Steak N’ Shake restaurant, where he was employed.

On Friday, 08-25-17 at 8:50 a.m., Officer Gill was dispatched to the 6200 block of Mission Street on a report of a woman not wearing pants and lying on the sidewalk. When Officer Gill arrived, he saw the subject on top of a sleeping bag and asked for her name and if she was okay. The subject stood up, pulled up her pants and ran into traffic on Mission Street in an attempt to run away from the officer. Officer Gill attempted to detain the subject, and the subject spit in his face. The subject shouted, “everybody is going to die”. While searching the subject, the officer found a small glass pipe with a burnt residue in it. The subject refused to give the officer her name, and the officer transported her to the Colma Police Department to obtain her identify from the “Live Scan” machine. While at the Colma Police Department, the subject said, “I’m going to shoot you” and “everyone is going to die” several times. The subject, a 49-year old Vallejo resident, was transported to Mills Peninsula Hospital for a mental health hold for being a danger to herself and others since she made statements of shooting and killing people. The officer asked the mental health staff to notify him when the subject was medically cleared so he could book her into jail for assaulting a police officer in the course of his duties, resisting and obstructing a peace officer and for being in possession of illegal drug paraphernalia.

On Friday, 08-25-17 at 11:45 a.m., the principal at Thornton High School was advised that a student was “out of it” and was seen bumping into things. The sturdent was brought to the office, and the principal said the subject smelled what he believed was marijuana coming from the student. The 17-year old student had marijuana inside of his backpack. The subject’s mother picked him up from school, and the incident will be handled by school personnel.

On Friday, 08-25-17 at 3:13 p.m., an officer was dispatched to Westmoor High School on a report of a student who was found in possession of Xanax. The campus security officer said the student came to the security office to report her iPod missing. The security officer asked the student to dump the contents of her backpack onto his desk so that he could help her locate the iPod. In going through the items, the security officer found a tube that appeared to contain marijuana residue and also a container containing a clear plastic sandwich bag containing 46 pills. The officer asked the subject what the pills were, and she admitted they were Xanax and that she sold some of them to friends within the past few days. The subject’s mother was contacted and wanted to teach her 13-year old daughter a lesson and requested her to be booked at the Youth Services Center.

On Saturday, 08-26-17 at 5:14 p.m., a 38-year old San Francisco resident reported seeing a subject masturbating on the ramp on Park Plaza Drive leading to the front of the Safeway store. The reporting party did not want to be involved but said reporting it was the right thing to do. She could only describe the suspect as a black male, approximately 30 years old, 5’9”, with a long goatee, wearing a long yellow t-shirt and blue jeans. Officers canvassed the area but could not locate the suspect.

On Wednesday, 08-23-17 at 6:53 p.m., Officer Perdomo and Officer Jackson-Berrios were dispatched to a report of a brandishing with a knife that occurred on the 200 block of South Mayfair Avenue. Officer Castillo located a subject matching the description of the subject given to dispatchers. The other two officers contacted the reporting party who said he was walking on the 200 block of South Mayfair Avenue when he heard a loud bang behind him, and when he turned around, he saw a subject wearing a face mask, waving a knife and saying something. The victim could not understand what the subject was saying because of the subject’s face mask and because he was wearing headphones. The victim, a 43-year old San Francisco resident, said he walked away towards the bus stop and decided to call 9-1-1 because he believed the subject could ask for his wallet or stab him. The 37-year old transient subject was arrested for brandishing a weapon.


There was one robbery during the past week.

On Tuesday, 08-22-17 at 7:10 p.m. a 36-year old Daly City resident was the victim of an armed robbery by a subject who showed a box cutter to him after forcing his way into a residence on the unit block of Shakespeare Avenue. The victim said the subject punched and choked him until he lost consciousness. He said the subject stole his backpack containing a cell phone, iPad and laptop. Investigators determined the subjects met through an on-line meeting app, and were able to identify the suspect. The subject, a 26-year old San Francisco resident, was arrested on 08-27-17 for assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, false imprisonment with violence and for a bench warrant.

San Mateo County Alert System (SMC)

This alert is a free digital communication system used by emergency management agencies and first responders to send emergency alerts, notifications and updates to portable digital devices. In an emergency situation, an alert will be sent by San Mateo County authorized personnel and you will receive messages on your cell phone or mobile device. Most carriers activate the service automatically. To receive emergency alerts, sign up by visiting According to County records, Daly City has the lowest number of registered users in the county. Please sign up today! 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!
