Crime Alert: Glen Park BART Station and surrounding area; A recent trend in robberies are occurring where suspect(s) are running up behind an unsuspecting victim and proceed to shove or push them to the ground and then forcefully take their cell phone, MP3 player and/or other valuable belongings. If you happen to see what may seem like a fight taking place on the street, it could actually be a robbery taking place. Immediately call (415) 553-8090 from your cell phone or “911” from a landline. Ingleside Police Officers are stepping up their efforts and increasing patrol to the area as well as sending our plain clothes officers to conduct surveillance. Remember, report any crime that you see taking place or anything that looks suspicious.

Weather related safety; Due to the inclement weather involving high winds, there have been numerous downed power lines and fallen tree limbs throughout the city. If there is a power line down in your neighborhood, for your own safety, do not approach it and stay a safe distance away while calling “911”.  Our headquarters will dispatch officers as well as the appropriate department to come out and assess the situation and repair the damage. If there is a fallen tree limb, call “311” and request DPW (Department of Public Works) to come out and handle the hazard. Also, be sure to look up to see if there are any broken tree limbs that are hanging from the tree that can pose a threat to people and/or property. Call “311” immediately.

Public Safety; In light of recent events at the Boston marathon, the police department will be increasing patrols in areas where the public gather including special events. If you see a suspicious package that does not look right or does not belong in the area, do not investigate it yourself. Create a safe distance between you and the suspicious package and do not use your cell phone to call the police. Use a landline to call “911” and provide your location and if possible the description of the package. Officers will be dispatched to assess the situation and take the appropriate action.


1:33am       300 Blk Wilde                         Resisting/Delaying
Officers Gabriel and Zerga responded to a family dispute that was getting out of hand inside a residence along the 300 block of Wilde Avenue. As the officers walked towards the front door they could hear a loud argument taking place inside.

The officers could see that the intoxicated brother was continuing to yell, while displaying an aggressive demeanor and was flailing his hands in an animated manner. For their safety and the safety of the family members, the officers decided to detain him by placing him in handcuffs. The brother suddenly snatched his arm away from officer Zerga and began to struggle. Officer Gabriel came to assist, while the brother continued to resist. After a brief struggle, both officers were able to gain control and place the brother in handcuffs.
