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 Monday, 04-15-19 at 8:17 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Alliance gas station on South Mayfair Avenue on a report of a subject with a knife. This occurred during an argument over a stolen bicycle from in front of Jamba Juice at Westlake Shopping Center. The 14-year old bicycle owner said he locked his bike outside Jamba Juice at 5:15 p.m. and saw subject with bolt cutters by his bicycle. The victim told the subject he owned the bicycle. The victim said when he left the store, he noticed his bicycle was gone, and the cable lock was on the ground. The victim and his two 21-year old friends found the subject at the gas station, and they said the subject pulled out a knife and threatened them.
