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, 09-18-17 at 10:00 a.m., officers were dispatched to the Home Depot store on a report of a possible kidnapping. The reporting party said he saw a female possibly being forced into a vehicle. The reporting party gave a description of the vehicle, and Officer Haas stopped the vehicle at the parking lot of Thornton Beach Vista. In speaking with the subjects, the officers were told by one of the passengers, a 17-year old Rohnert Park resident, that she had gotten out of her friend’s vehicle to urinate in the parking lot. She said she was drunk, felt faint, and had her friend help her get back into the vehicle. After a subsequent investigation, two passengers, a 23-year old Colma resident and a 27 year old transient, were arrested for public intoxication. Another passenger, a 27-year old transient was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and for possession of stolen property (jewelry, iPhone and a check—all taken in a robbery in San Francisco earlier). The last occupant of the vehicle, a 31-year old San Francisco resident, was arrested for possession of narcotics for sale and for possession of paraphernalia. The 17-year old was released to her mother. There was no merit to a kidnapping.

On Monday, 09-18-17 at approximately 7:49 p.m., a 31-year old Daly City resident said he was the victim of the exhibition of a deadly weapon and criminal threats by an unknown suspect. The victim said he was with his wife and kids pumping gas at the Chevron gas station on Bayshore Boulevard. He said he noticed a white Dodge Charger parked in front of the air dispenser of the gas station and said they were not using the air pump. The victim said that after he finished pumping gas, he moved his vehicle near the air pump and approached the white Dodge. He said he asked the driver if he she was going to be using the air, and the passenger stepped out of the vehicle. The victim said the passenger brandished a knife, brought it up toward the victim’s chest area and said, “Get the f*check back in the car or I will use this on you.” The victim grabbed his cell phone and started taking photos of the vehicle. The vehicle then drove away southbound on Bayshore Boulevard. Officers were able to determine the identity of the suspect, a 22-year old San Francisco resident, and a complaint is sought against him.

On Monday, 09-18-17 at approximately 8:32 p.m., a 47-year old San Francisco resident was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after she backed up into a parked car on the 1100 block of Skyline Drive.

On Wednesday, 09-20-17 at 11:08 a.m., Officer Shoopman and Officer Digiacomo were dispatched to an apartment on the 6200 block of Mission Street on a report pf a subject who broke into a residence and then fled on a bus. The victim said she was in her kitchen when she heard a noise near the downstairs front door. She said she saw a black male standing at the bottom of the stairs, and then as the victim was yelling her brother’s name, she said the subject started to make his way up the stairs. The victim said she ran out the back of the residence with her 2-year old niece. The victim’s brother asked the subject what he was doing, and he said the subject left and walked northbound on Mission Street and then got on a bus. The officers stopped the bus at Mission Street and Acton Street and talked to a subject matching the description given to them by the dispatcher. The 33-year old transient subject said he thought he was walking into a travel agency and not a residence. The subject had a toy lightsaber inside his front waistband and a glass pipe with burn marks on it in his left front pants pocket. While speaking with the subject, officers noticed that the subject was exhibiting mannerisms that one who was under the influence of a controlled substance would be making. The officers conducted tests and determined the subject was under the influence. He was subsequently arrested for residential burglary, possession of drug paraphernalia and for being under the influence of a controlled substance.

On Saturday, 09-23-17 at 3:25 a.m., a 26-year old San Francisco resident was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after he was involved in a crash with three parked vehicles on the 200 block of Lake Merced Boulevard.

On Saturday, 09-23-17 at approximately 10:00 a.m., Officer Rodney Chittenden was dispatched to a residence on the 3100 block of Geneva Avenue on a report of a burglary in progress. The dispatcher advised that a male family member had cut a lock off a chain and was in the residence. Other officers arrived and contacted the 66-year old victim who said her nephew had cut the lock from a chain she had on her metal gate. The victim said she formally evicted her 35-year old nephew and wanted him prosecuted for trespassing. Officers contacted the subject who said he wanted to get some clothing and didn’t plan to be there long, but then he ended up resting for a while. Officers transported the subject to jail.

On Sunday, 09-24-17 at approximately 4:46 p.m., Officer Lickness and Officer Yip were dispatched to the Moonstar Restaurant on the report of two males who were possibly overdosing on drugs. The officers escorted both subjects out of the restaurant. They smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on one of the subjects, and that subject kept dozing off while the officers spoke to him. The subject said he had six beers. Officer Lickness asked the subject if he could search him, and the subject consented. The officer found two green tablets (later determined to be Xanax) in the subject’s pants pocket. The subject, a 20-year old Novato resident, was transported to the station, and his condition started to deteriorate. The paramedics were called and transported the subject to Seton Hospital for treatment. After the subject was medically cleared, he was arrested and booked in jail for being under the influence of a controlled substance and for possession of a controlled substance. The other subject was released.

Volunteers needed for “Make a Difference Day” on Saturday, 10-28-17 (9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.)

On Saturday, 10-28-17, Daly City celebrates its 19th consecutive year of participation in “Make a Difference Day,” a National day of volunteerism. Since 1991, communities across the United States have participated in USA Weekend Magazine’s “Make a Difference Day”, and volunteers across the United States have donated millions of hours of service for the betterment of their communities.

Daly City residents are asked to “Make a Difference” by volunteering on one of our community projects. All volunteers are invited to attend the post-event lunch at 12:00 noon at the City Hall Plaza and Rose Garden. The lunch is generously sponsored by the Daly City Host Lions Club.

This year’s event is with the Top of the Hill Improvement Association (TOTHIA), to host a cleanup and garden maintenance day. There are now eight Project Green Space drought tolerant gardens on Mission Street. The activities here will include litter cleanup, weeding, mulching, painting garden signs and much more. The City will provide all the necessary supplies such as trash pickers, gloves, vests, shovels, plants, etc. to make this volunteer experience a success.

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.

There is also a mobile application, or you can have it sent to your e-mail. Give it a try!
