3:45pm       400 Blk Huron                        Discharging a Firearm
Officers Gordon and Bernard responded to San Francisco General Hospital regarding a victim that had arrived with a gunshot wound. Upon arrival, the officers along with Sgt Lozada interviewed the victim, who said he was shot in the leg, while inside a house along the 400 block of Huron Street. Because the victim was in so much pain and being treated, he was only able to describe the house, but failed to provide the details about the shooting to the officers. Sgt Lozada broadcast the information and had units respond to locate the house. Sgt McDevitt along with several Ingleside units responded to the 400 block of Huron Street and located the house as described by the victim. Once there, the officers detained a total of 11 people, three of which were in a parked car close by. The officers searched the house and found no other victims inside. The officers searched the vehicle as well and found that one of the occupants was in possession of a bullet resistant vest. Having been convicted of a prior felony, this suspect was prohibited from possessing the vest. He was taken into custody. A records check on the remaining subjects revealed that one of them had numerous outstanding warrants. He too, was taken into custody. Sgt Inocencio of the Ingleside Special Investigation Team arrived and took over the investigation as its still on-going. The remaining subjects were released from Ingleside Station after having been interviewed. The victim was treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the leg. Report Number: 130219618

Officers Campos and Barajas responded to the 400 block of Huron Street to assist other Ingleside Officers in a shooting investigation that took place a couple hours earlier.

Officer Campos seized the drug and placed the subject under arrest. He was subsequently booked at Ingleside Station for the offense. Report Number: 130220461

Serious Incidents:

7:32pm       Mission/Onondaga                 Aggravated Assault
Officer Chew responded to Mission and Onondaga regarding a fight taking place on board a MUNI bus. Officer Chew spoke to a mother and her fifteen year old daughter who said they were both on board the bus when it stopped at the bus stop. Both victims said the bus was already filled to capacity when an unknown suspect attempted to board the bus from the rear. The daughter said she was near the rear door when the suspect pushed her in the back in an attempt to make room for himself. The daughter told the suspect that there was no more room and to stop pushing her, but the suspect continued. After continually being pushed, the daughter turned around and slapped the suspect in the face and told him, “There’s no more room”. The suspect punched the daughter in the face and began to strangle her. The victim’s mother came to her aide and began hitting the suspect trying to get him to release her, but he ended up punching the mother as well. Finally, the suspect let go and fled the scene. A search of the area was conducted to no avail. Both victims were transported to the hospital for the injuries they sustained. Report Number: 130220085

CRIME ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boostings around Precita Park and the surrounding area.  Don’t be a Victim.
Take extra precautions to avoid a criminal window-shopping inside your car. Never give them a reason to break into your car and steal your belongings.

                                                          Safety Tips:
*Try to park in a well- lit area and always lock your doors and secure your windows.
*Do not leave possessions on the seat or in plain view.
*Never hide belongings under the seat: This is the first place burglars check.
*Never cover expensive items with an article of clothing or blanket:  This presents a hidden clue to thieves that items may be underneath.
*Do not leave any important documents inside your car that contain your personal information.
* Do not leave phone or MP3 chargers plugged in: this leads the burglar to believe there are expensive electronics inside your car.

Remember, if a criminal is unsuccessful and is not benefitting from his criminal activity, the thief will move on, thus making your neighborhood less of a target.
