Crime Alert 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, 03-19-19 at 9:30 a.m., Officer Mulitauopele and Officer Williams were dispatched to Bryant Street and Washington Street on a report of a male attacking a female. The victim, a 34-year old South San Francisco resident, said she had parked her car at the intersection and noticed a male subject standing on the sidewalk near her car was staring at her. The victim got out of her car and asked the subject if she could help him with something. The victim said the subject said, “What’s your problem?” and they verbally started going back and forth. The victim as she started to walk away, the subject kicked her car. The victim said she took out her iPhone X to take a photo of the subject, but before she could do so, the victim said the subject took the phone out of her hands and threw it to the ground. The victim said she ran to get the phone, but the subject picked it up and held it high, while pushing the victim back away from him. The victim screamed to get attention from the people near the DMV, and she said the subject pushed her down several times, grabbed her arms and punched her several times, once on the mouth. A passing driver stopped and asked the victim if she needed help. The subject ran away when the driver intervened, but the driver caught up to the suspect, obtained the victim’s phone and waited for the police. Sgt. Hussain was in the area and detained the subject. The subject, a 40-year old transient, was arrested for robbery and vandalism.

On Tuesday, 03-19-19 at 12:34 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Serramonte Shopping Center parking lot on a report of a female looking into vehicles in the parking lot. Officer Farrar arrived and advised the subject that she was reported to be looking into vehicles. The mall security said the female had a bag in her hand and tossed it in the bushes. The subject told the officer that she was shopping, and she was waiting for her brother to pick her up in the lot. The female pointed to a vehicle that passed by, but the vehicle never returned. Mall security personnel arrived and handed the officer the bag from the bushes. The bag contained new clothing with the security sensors and price tags still on them. The subject, a 23-year old San Francisco resident, was ultimately arrested for being a felon in possession of pepper spray, petty theft, possession of burglary tools and obstructing/delaying/resisting arrest after threatening to harm Officer Andrade who arrived to assist in this case.

As the victim approached Parkview Avenue, he said he saw two subjects standing on the sidewalk who then started to run towards him. The victim said when the subjects approached him, one of the subjects forcefully grabbed his iPhone from his hand, and the other suspect pulled the backpack off his back, which caused him to fall.

Scams/Other

Social Security Number Scam

On Tuesday, 03-19-19 at 3:35 p.m., a 54-year old Daly City resident received a phone call from a “972” area code from a subject who told her he was a Police Officer with the City of Daly City. The caller told the reporting party that her social security number had been compromised, and several bank accounts had been opened in her name. The caller told her the bank accounts were associated with drug cartels. The caller told her that in order to protect herself from any financial damages, she needed to immediately withdraw the money from her bank accounts and sent it to a secure account via Bitcoin. The reporting party was frightened that a “Police Officer” gave her this information and stayed on the phone with the caller the entire time. The reporting party became suspicious and asked the subject to prove he was a police officer. The subject said he would call her from the police department’s phone number, and the phone did, indeed, come back to our phone number. The victim felt confident she wasn’t getting scammed and withdrew $13,000 from her bank and went to a location where Bitcoin ATM’s are located and deposited the money. The victim later realized she was scammed.

Even though the person called the victim back and the caller ID # came back to the police department’s phone number, there are phone applications that can easily proxy a telephone number to make it appear that the call is coming from another number. If the victim had called the police department, then this would have been avoided.

We can assure you that we would never call with news like this, and we would NEVER ask you to take money out of your bank. Please pass along this story to those you know.
